Tennyson Center for Children serves children ages 5-18 who have experienced severe abuse, neglect and/or trauma so they can bravely, and safely, change their life’s story. For the past 112 years, Tennyson’s trained professionals have empowered children and families by providing a child-centered, customized approach to healing through our Community-Based, School, and/or Residential programs. In 2016, Tennyson Center surged past 1 million hours per year of direct care to children and families across Colorado. The outcome of this work is considerable, including keeping 96.3% of the kids in the Community-Based Services program in safe homes while in treatment, dramatically reducing hospitalization and crisis stabilization requirements for 83.2% of the children served, while keeping 98% of the kids in school (no expulsions). Tennyson Center works with some of the hardest cases in Colorado, with kids averaging 6-8 foster placements before they even come to Tennyson. Tennyson Center’s results are remarkable, and scaling.
What To Wear :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
