How legitimate is the need?
In El Paso County, CO, 2,142 children were identified as experiencing homelessness by the Colorado Department of Education in the school year of 2017-2018.
The National Center for Homeless states over 92% of homeless mothers have experienced severe physical and/or sexual abuse during their lifetime and that children experiencing homelessness have 3 times the rate of emotional and behavioral problems compared to non-homeless children.
The 2017 Colorado Health Access Survey states that 8.1% of Coloradans below the poverty line are uninsured. And that 21% of Coloradans below the federal poverty line spend more than 20% of their income on out-of-pocket health costs.
Does all the money donated actually go to the cause?
In CY 2018, our expenses showed that 71.3% are because of program service expenses, 15.7% was administration expense and 13% was fundraising expense.
