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.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
Be the Gift is a faith based community with a huge heart for single moms and the incredible work they do each day to provide for their children. One of the greatest things we can give to others is our time. Our desire and passion is to provide opportunity for individuals, organizations, and churches to use their gift of time, go out, and assist their community with home repair projects.
Be the Gift works with the local community to reach out and provide home repair assistance to single moms as a gift. We focus on providing health and safety to the family through these repairs while also giving them a well functioning home to live in. We come alongside single moms and their children, and connect those who need help with those who want to help.
Single moms may request assistance, or you can nominate a single mom who you know is in need of home repair. Project managers then assess and evaluate the areas that need home repair assistance. Projects are scheduled utilizing professional skilled and unskilled community volunteers who spend a day at the home of a single mom and her children. All labor is donated and we rely on donations to purchase supplies and materials.
Be the Gift brings a new sense of hope to single moms and their children. Our goal is to alleviate the stresses of life by giving practical assistance to these families, and by serving them we believe they will feel and experience the love and hope that God has for their future.
We love to share the good news with the community!
