Realities For Children Celebrates 25 Years of Hope and Healing

Realities For Children, Inc. 308 E. County Road 30 Fort Collins, CO 80525 970-484-9090 info@RealitiesForChildren.com RealitiesForChildren.com Realities For Children Staff Craig Secher Founder & President Shelley Carroll Membership Director Mehgan Castor Community Outreach Coordinator Jill Foster Director of Marketing Emily Jolly Director of Events Molly Secher Member Relations Manager Serena Thomas Partner Agency Program Manager Realities For Children Charities Board of Directors Justin Smith, President Larimer County Sheriff Karen Weitkunat, Vice President Former City of Fort Collins Mayor Kristy Volesky, Secretary Detective Lieutenant Fort Collins Police Dept. Bryan Watkins, Treasurer Community Relations Elevations Credit Union Larry Abrahamson Former Larimer County District Attorney Craig Secher Executive Director Realities For Children


Twenty-five years ago Realities For Children’s Founder and Executive Director, Craig Secher, was serving as a Larimer County child protection case manager when he found many children on his caseload were falling through cracks in the social services system. In 1995 Craig left his position with Child Protection to take steps to solve this problem by creating a private-social partnership between business leaders and the agencies he worked with that provided for children who had been abused, neglected, abandoned or at-risk. He wanted to create a mutually beneficial partnership that would both stand the test of time and help unite our community in service to the children he was so dedicated to. He offered a monthly business membership to the Real Estate industry and provided these members with advertising benefits as well as the positive company name association that would draw community support. Membership fees covered all administrative costs enabling 100% of all donations received to be distributed to the children served through Realities Partner Agencies. By the end of 1996 Realities had provided nearly $20,000 in emergency services and throughout 1997, as caseworkers became more aware of this needed resource, emergency requests over tripled. To meet this demand and achieve his vision to see that no child in need was forgotten, Business Membership was opened to all local businesses in 1998. Today Realities For Children still operates under the same business membership model and now has more than 250 valued Business Members and 39 Partner Agencies all dedicated to serving children in the community who have faced abuse, neglect or are at-risk. In 2019, Realities For Children provided 3,458 children with needed emergency services funding, 4,191 children attended our special youth activities and 5,765 children received needed items! Realities For Children Homebase Facility hosted 8,232 agency leaders, children, and guests of our Partner Agencies free of charge for the betterment of their programs and services. And this past year alone 1,053 volunteer positions were filled for 3,590 hours of service! This year marks a special anniversary for us and we are excited to Celebrate 25 Years of Hope and Healing with you. Please look through the pages of this Directory to find the over 250 valued Business Members and 39 Partner Agencies who are committed to making the lives of children in your community better! Also, check out the back cover for the opportunity to attend our five Premier events this year. Visit us at realitiesforchildren.com for ways to get involved and help us to reach even further in service during this meaningful year! Realities For Children’s mission and vision has stayed the same since 1995 and will continue to for years to come, as we come together to see that no child in need is forgotten.

Matt Shoup with M&E Painting It has been an extreme honor for me to be a part of such an amazing organization here in Northern Colorado. When I first got involved with Realities For Children, I quickly became aware of the large need that the children of this community have. Since day one, I have been extremely impressed by the leadership and the unique structure of Realities For Children, as well as its ability to quickly serve children in need in Northern Colorado. I have yet to find another organization where 100% of a donation goes straight to the recipient in need. Just as M & E Painting has continued to grow in the community, its team and I are all very passionate and dedicated to continue to grow with and support Realities For Children; and as they continue to grow, I am excited by the vision for where this organization is going in the future.

What is Realities For Children? Realities For Children, Inc. is an alliance of local businesses whose mission is to provide for the unmet needs of children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk by uniting local businesses, youth agencies and the community in collaborative and mutually beneficial service. These businesses support the work of Realities For Children Charities by underwriting the administration of all their programs and services. This support allows the charity to operate without expenses, ensuring 100% of every dollar raised or donated directly benefits northern Colorado children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk. Partnered in service with 39 local youth agencies, Realities For Children creates a safety net of services for children when no other resources are available. We provide six core services: • Emergency Funding • Youth Activities & Special Programs • Community Awareness • Agency Sponsorship • Facilities Space • Item Distributions

Because no child should be forgotten.
