Acts of Love

Little Flower Assistance Center in Aurora is a food, clothing and resource center for the community. Prior to COVID-19, Little Flower was an essential service to those in the neighborhood. During COVID-19, this program that is supported by many dedicated volunteers became an essential service throughout Denver, Aurora and beyond. With the effects of businesses closed and jobs eliminated, our little-known yet might ministry became an important provider of necessities.

Little Flower Assistance Center stepped up to the challenge:

  • In March, we saw a 20 percent increase in new families, and a 25 percent increase in total number of households served.
  • In April, we estimate an increase of 60 percent over the previous month of households served.

With the support of grants from family foundations, Knights of Columbus and more, Catholic Charities has extended to two other emergency assistance centers. The expansion will last for the duration of the funding.

  • Food assistance
  • Diapers and baby supplies
  • Bus tickets
  • Clothing and school supplies
  • Employment assistance
  • A resource for additional services available at Catholic Charities and beyond
