A Force 4 Good helps Mountain States Children’s Home

As part of our Force for Good, a dedicated group of VOLTAGE employees bussed to Longmont and volunteered our time.

Mountain States Children’s Home in Longmont Colo. provides a temporary home for kids who have nowhere else to go. The non-profit, founded in 1960, is self-funded and offers a safe environment to teenaged kids when they can’t live with their family. Kids receive educational, emotional, spiritual, and structural support. The home privately funds this comprehensive lifestyle to minors in need — what an extraordinary non-profit!

We toured the estate, with three large houses (and a fourth close to completion), an open school room, a gym that included a CrossFit area, and a farm where teens learn about and maintain agriculture and livestock.

Kids living at Mountain States Children’s Home grow by leaps and bounds during their stay, often surpassing the kind of improvements seen in a traditional environment. For instance, some children move up multiple grade levels during their stay. Nearly all of the kids change their behavior and develop new outlooks on life. A fantastic staff of teachers, counselors, house supervisors, and fundraisers help make this kind of growth possible.

For the rest of our visit we worked on a few projects:

  • Mowing common area grass
  • Demolishing unstable furniture
  • Preparing cooling units for the summer
  • Organizing an impressive amount of food and toiletry donations
  • Landscaping part of the 155 acre farm

If you want to help out, you can donate to the Mountain States Children’s Home, volunteer like we did, or shop at their thrift store in Longmont, Colo.
