Denver Warm Welcome Court Child Care Center
The Denver Warm Welcome Court Child Care Center is in need of cold-weather accessories for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 12 years. The Center has been in operation since May 1999. Each year, the Center serves more than 1,700 children whose parents or guardians have business with the Denver County and District Courts. Many of the clients are those who have been called for jury duty and need child care assistance while they complete their civic duty. The Denver Warm Welcome Court Child Care Center is operated by Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers, a nonprofit child care agency in the Denver metro area. The Center is fully licensed as a small child care center by the state of Colorado. Please drop off your donations, either gently used or new, to the Center at 270 14th St., Denver, or to the Bar Association office, Attn: Heather Clark, 1900 Grant St., Suite 900, Denver.
