Celebrate #GivingTuesday with Family Star!


Family Star is honored to join nonprofits around the world in celebrating #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. As you know, Family Star celebrated 25 years of service in 2016 and we need your help to continue providing revolutionary Montessori preschool education and support to Denver’s most vulnerable children and families.

In 2016, we:

  • expanded our scholarship fund to honor three women who were instrumental to our success during our formative years: Dr. Martha Urioste, Nancy Cohen, and Honey Niehaus
  • connected families experiencing homelessness, transitional housing, and/or poverty with our Parent Educators who conducted weekly home visits
  • provided freshly prepared meals, formula, and diapers to all children in our center-based programs
  • hosted monthly family nights to empower and educate parents to be their child’s first advocate

We have many goals for 2017, as well as the next 25 years…but we need your help! The transformational work we do to nourish our children’s minds, bodies, and souls through the highest quality Montessori education is possible because of your generous contributions.
