This might include distributing food, making a donation or sharing a social media post. Your efforts can go a very long way.*We will continue to update this page on a weekly basis.

Our Front Porch Colorado
Our Front Porch Colorado

Seeking 2,020 donations of $20 and have raised $9,000. Also in need of food and gas gift cards.

DONATIONS: Our Front Porch is trying to make up from fundraising events that were cancelled as a result of COVID-19 by asking folks to donate $20 in 2020. COVID-19 is also a 2nd disaster that our clients have to deal with on top of their house fire, and the result is exponentially worse. The goal is to get 2,020 donations of $20 and so far we have raised $9,000 or 22%. There are 2 ways to donate, on our webpage or through facebook.

FOOD AND GAS GIFT CARDS: We are also happy to take food and gas gift cards for clients who have lost income as a result of COVID-19, just to help make ends meet during this difficult time. Gift cards can be mailed to our office: Our Front Porch, 6740 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80220.

Star Institute needs to raise funding for their Sensory Within Distance program, family scholarships and high quality homemade masks.

The Sensory Within Distance Campaign needs to raise $67,000 ASAP and every little helps. If you are in a position to donate your contribution will make a difference today. Donate here and write “Sensory Within Distance” in the comments section.

Online services – STAR Institute’s virtual groups have had an incredible impact on the families we have been able to serve. Can you support a family with a scholarship place for our groups program? $300 enables a family to participate in a group program supporting regulation, social skill building, and school readiness. Donate here and write “Groups Scholarship” in the comments section.

STAR needs pediatric and adult sized masks for our clients. Can you help STAR with high quality home made masks of different designs? Adults and children on the autism spectrum often struggle with the straps over their ears, adapted mask designs can mean the difference between tolerating a mask or not. Contact info@spdstar.org if you can be part of a team making adapted sensory masks.
