The FIRE Foundation of Denver is proud to support two Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Denver with grants for the 2022-2023 school year. FIRE will provide grants totaling $68,578 to St. John the Baptist in Longmont and Sacred Heart of Jesus in Boulder to support the salaries of para-professionals for children with disabilities who would otherwise not be able to attend Catholic school without this extra support. We are also providing funds for a soundfield voice system to help children with hearing loss more fully access a Catholic education.
FIRE is pleased to partner with the Archdiocese and the Office of Catholic Schools to provide a $20,000 grant to support the salary for the new Director of Student Support Services position. This position will oversee and assist schools in educating children with significant special needs throughout the Archdiocese of Denver.
