Volunteers of America Early Childhood Education Center

Location: Denver, Colorado
Client: Volunteers of America Colorado Branch

When making plans for the future few things are as certain as who will be the teachers, mayor, police officers, doctors and engineers the children of today. A renewed focus on providing those children, more specifically those living below the poverty level, with the resources to find success at the earliest stages of development was the driving force for the Volunteers of America (VOA) Early Childhood Education Center.

The VOA-operated Great Kids Head Start Delegate Center in Denver’s Westwood neighborhood, which has been providing early childhood education to preschool children since 2001, had outgrown its location and held a waiting list of 30 eligible children. Enter, VOA Early Childhood Education Center, a new 11,425-square-foot facility located adjacent to a new affordable housing community where many eligible children and families reside.
