Who We Are

Growing Home is dedicated to creating a thriving and equitable north Denver metro area, one family at a time. Click on the links below to learn more about us. To learn more about the Growing Home board click here. To learn more about our team click here.

Our Mission

Our participant-centered approach to strengthening families, nurturing children and connecting community fills a critical gap for families and children who are experiencing immediate and long-term barriers to stability and success. We improve outcomes for children, their parents and their community.

History

In 1998, Kathleen Drozda, a career nurse who had specialized in neurology, neurosurgery, and trauma services, encountered a woman in need who was living in her car. This event shifted her focus to prevention and community outreach. Had she not made this decision, Growing Home might not exist today.
