Bringing Hope, Restoration, and Life to Single Moms and Children

 Be the Gift provides practical assistance to single mom home owners in need of home repair. Our goal is to ensure a safe and healthy home environment for single mom families and to improve their quality of life.

Welcome To Be the Gift!

Be the Gift is a local nonprofit in Colorado that believes some of the greatest heroes of our time are single moms who give their lives to raise their children and provide for them.  With their limited income and all their time poured into their kids, single moms sometimes struggle to maintain and repair their home.  Be the Gift’s team of project managers and volunteers work together to provide home repairs for single moms as a gift.  We give them a safer, healthier and more functioning home in which to raise their children.

“What an incredible organization! I guess you never really know what you are missing or how much you need the support of others until they walk into your life. It was amazing to see a small army of people gathered in front of my house and the ringing of the door bell as others joined in throughout the day to help.”
“This has meant so much to me I could never have done this without their help. Everyone was so kind and worked so hard. This has truly been a wonderful gift. I am so grateful for everything, I cannot put it into words”
“I would say that the deepest impact has been the heart’s of each of the men and women who came to serve us that Saturday. Their deep desire to help us and their pouring out of their talents and gifting of their time has so encouraged us!”
