Holiday Hope Program

Holiday Hope Gift Program:

Many of our youth have never received a gift at Christmas. That is why, each Christmas at Third Way Center, we partner with our donors and community to provide each of our residents with three gifts totaling $100. If you would like to adopt a youth, click the button below.

How it works:

  1. Commit $100 to fulfill one of our resident’s wishlists.
  2. Shop for the gifts on the wishlist.
  3. Drop off your gifts at our Administrative Office

           455 Acoma Street Denver, CO 80204

To sign up for a Wish List, please email Sally Reed at


Holiday Meal Donation:

How it works:

  • We will be collecting food donations this holiday season. Items can be dropped off to our Administrative Office located at 455 Acoma Street Denver, CO 80204.

Monetary contributions:

We know the holidays are a busy time, and it can be difficult for those who wish  to participate in our various holiday programs. In an effort  to expand levels of participation, we also offer the option of making a monetary contribution. We appreciate all donations, big and small, in order to make  a difference in the lives of  our youth.
