METRO DENVER

Since its inception in 2005, A Little Help has grown in a grassroots way with the help of great neighbors volunteering to lead the charge in their communities.  A Little Help’s South Central Neighborhood, then known as Washington Park Cares, was our founding site. However, with the help of committed neighbors, staff, and board members, we've been able to support more people throughout Metro Denver and beyond.

 

MARCH HIGHLIGHTS

We need your help to acquire donations for our annual Little Soiree Silent Auction, April 17.  Would your favorite coffee shop, salon, restaurant, or other small business be willing to donate a gift certificate? It's a big help to us and great public relations for them!  Just give us a call for more details. After three years with A Little Help, Amanda Gregg is moving on.  Be sure to read about the exciting new business she is starting.  A special thanks to Strive Prep RISE students for creating and addressing more than 300 Valentine's Day cards for our members.  Help us welcome Jake Dresden, our new staff member. He has a long history as a volunteer and is now joining us in the main office.
