The Denver Executive Association has a commitment to the Denver and Front Range community: a commitment that is baked into our model and integrated into everything we do.
We have a dedicated seat in our group that is given to a single nonprofit for a two-year term. That group is carefully vetted and chosen through an internal process to ensure they are a good fit and a cause that our membership can feel passionate about.
For the last 10 years, we have supported — both monetarily and professionally — Urban Peak, Providence Network, Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives, and Colorado Young Leaders (CYL). Our current nonprofit (through 2021) is The Tennyson Center For Children.
Tennyson Center for Children has served Colorado’s most neglected, abused, and traumatized children since 1904. We provide an accredited, therapeutic K-12 school with a 4:1 student-to-staff ratio on our campus and in-home and community services in 18 counties across the state to provide preventive services and therapy to strengthen families with children aged 0 to adulthood.
In 2019, we began leading a statewide collaborative called Rewiring that seeks to ensure that families remain safely together and eventually reduce the number of children and families involved with the child welfare system.
In 2020, we further expanded our programming in order to help more kids and families in new ways by partnering with Families Together, whose volunteer “Neighbors” offer family support, making home life peaceful for children in foster, adoptive, reunified, kinship, and natural families.
