Board Member Lisa Corley, CEO and founder Carina Martin, Gwenivere Snyder who established the Women’s Guild and Maura Johnson, vice president of the Women’s Guild.
Women’s Guild Breakfast chairs Meredith Coors and Ashley Moses filled the ballroom at Glenmoor Country Club with guests who were already members as well as prospects eager to learn about the nonprofit that was founded 10 years ago in the garage of CEO and founder Carina Martin and is growing exponentially. The Women’s Guild is a powerhouse of influential women, sharing a powerful commitment to A Precious Child and embraces its platform to lead effective and meaningful change for Colorado children in need. Sponsors for the day’s event were Lisa Corley and Noble Energy. It was a precious moment when client Amber Talley shared her incredible journey and how A Precious Child has been a gift and blessing in her life and the lives of her children. Unfortunate circumstances can strike any of us.

Since 2008, A Precious Child has been collaborating, connecting, serving and empowering the community. The organization listened to the community and its needs and created programming to fill the gaps in services not provided by other nonprofits or other organizations to empower children in need to achieve their full potential. A Precious Child supports and collaborates with 440 agency partners across eight counties including Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Jefferson and Weld. Agency partners consist of schools, human services, mental health and foster care organizations, churches, hospitals, safe houses, fire and police departments, at-risk youth centers and homeless shelters. There are 289,000 children currently living in poverty and living below the Colorado self-sufficiency standard. A Precious Child is not duplicating what other nonprofits contribute to our communities, it is collaborating and supporting those organizations empowering them to magnify their impact. Together, teaming up with agency partners, A Precious Child was able to support 48,000 children and 5,000 adults living in poverty in 2018. It provided 17,126 backpacks filled with the appropriate school supplies and provided over 11,979 Christmas gifts from specific wish lists. In addition, the nonprofit is resource-oriented and provides opportunities for children’s extracurricular activities including sports equipment. Upcoming events include a tea and gala.
