SafeHouse Denver logoEstablished in 1977, SafeHouse Denver is the only agency in the City and County of Denver that provides both emergency shelter and non-residential counseling and advocacy services to adults, children and youth experiencing intimate partner violence.
SafeHouse Denver works to eliminate domestic violence in our communities by:

  • providing shelter and counseling to survivors of abuse;
  • working with public and community agencies to improve the way our systems respond to domestic violence;
  • and by offering educational programming to prevent future violence.

SafeHouse began as a 16-bed shelter providing a safe place for women and their children. Today, SafeHouse Denver’s shelter has 27 beds plus cribs, serving more than 250 women and children in a typical year. In addition, SafeHouse serves hundreds more adults, children and youth through non-residential services. More than just keeping survivors safe, SafeHouse services include individual counseling, advocacy support groups, legal assistance and referrals to other services.

Enlighten Nepal logoEnlighten Nepal, Inc. is a small group of individuals dedicated to improving the futures of Nepali youth.

What We Do
Our goal is to provide educational opportunities to the brightest under-privileged youth of Nepal.
The Nepali education system is designed to have students in school through primary and secondary school –  grade 10.  Upon completion of grade 10, students complete what is called the SLC Exam, or Student Learning Certificate. In Nepal, the SLC is the equivalent of the ACT or SAT for high school testing in the U.S.  In order for Nepali students to continue their education past grade 10, it is necessary to pass the SLC Exam. Most students, in fact, do not come close to passing this rigorous exam.

ENI provides the means necessary for students who has passed the SLC Exam to attend +1, +2, and subsequently college if the student chooses to continue their education.

In addition to higher education, Enlighten Nepal grants scholarships to students attending primary and secondary school. We believe that if a student has been given a proper education at a qualified school from a younger age, their educational foundation will be stronger.  Quality education instills confidence and choice. Our students will have the confidence to do what they wish to do and the choice to be who they wish to be.

We inform the community about the work of the family of UN bodies. There are the annual UN Day, quarterly dinner lectures, monthly talks with Q&A, and monthly discussion groups where you can listen, learn, and put forth your own points of view. You are welcome to help us identify topics and speakers, debate the challenging questions of peace and development, or to just come and listen.

We make a difference for people in need in developing countries. We select a cause and mobilize support for it. Since 1999 we have raised over $100,000 to support primary and basic education in Afghanistan, $20,000 for population activities, and with our counterparts in Denver and Fort Collins over $120,000 for clearing landmines. You can help us to identify causes that demonstrate the value of the work of UN organizations and raise awareness and mobilize funds to address them. Our latest effort is on behalf of a center for street children in Haiti.

We recognise Boulder County citizens who do significant international work. Each year we ask, “Who has done the most for international human rights?” We find them and we honor them. Almost every year we give a scholarship to a student who has done outstanding work on international affairs and sees a future in international work. You can help us to identify these persons and to publicize the importance of their work.

We advocate for the work of the UN. We have been the architects of a resolution on climate change that has been adopted by all the chapters and divisions of the UNA-USA. This resolution will make the follow-up of the Kyoto treaty a priority for the organization and calls on the administration to join whole-heartedly into the discussions. We prepare position papers on other topics of national and global consequence to stimulate debate. We meet annually with our Congressional representatives or staff to urge them to support the work of the UN. You can contribute your ideas on how our government should work with the UN.

Sanchez Elementary PTA is a member of the Colorado PTA. Colorado PTA was founded in 1907 as the Colorado Congress of Mothers and  incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1915.  Since its founding, Colorado PTA has served as a nonsectarian, nonpartisan advocate for the child and for parental engagement.
As the volunteer-run, state chapter  of PTA, Colorado PTA acts as the link  between the national association, based in Alexandria, VA and the local school PTAs  (known as local units) located throughout the State of Colorado.
As a chartered, membership-based organization, each local unit, while maintaining its own autonomy, also benefits from being supported by this state and national structure which provides valuable information, resources and training.  Through this  structure, local unit members automatically obtain membership in both Colorado PTA and National PTA as well.

Front Range German Shepherd Rescue LogoColorado Front Range German Shepherd Rescue is a small group of German Shepherd lovers in the Denver area who volunteer our time and talents to help homeless pets find new families. We are always looking for new volunteers – providing temporary foster homes for these dogs is the big need, but there are many more opportunities to help. Please consider joining our efforts.

We also help owners who, due to unforeseen circumstances, find themselves unable to keep their dogs.
Adopting Your New Canine Family Member
All of the Front Range adoptable dogs are home fostered, or in cases where no foster home is available, some may even be boarded. We do not have a shelter, so there is no central location where all the dogs can be viewed.
