About Feed The Fam
Find Free Fun’s Feed the Fam was started in 2017 when Find Free Fun was created through Denver Free Fun. Feed the Fam is our charity organization supporting homeless and in-crisis teens and their families. It was created after Find Free Fun owner, Kristina Corcoran’s son struggled in high school with addiction. Many of his friends found themselves homeless during this time due to their active addiction and were living in cars and couch surfing while trying to complete high school.
She took her son to multiple mental health clinics during this time and was turned away repeatedly without being told that many of the issues were due to a drug problem due to Colorado’s laws that prevent providers talking to parents after children turn 13 years old. She ended up taking in several of his friends as well trying to help these kids. At this time she realized how few resources there were for parents, but realized these kids needed stability and help in order to finish school and break the cycle they were in while staying out of a system not designed to let them succeed.
When her son received a Minor in Possession of Pot ticket, it snowballed quickly and they experienced a system bent on punishment not rehabilitation. Fortunately, she managed to get her son into a treatment facility where he spent three months in treatment successfully. The other kids she took in also managed to finish high school and build careers due to her tireless efforts, many also seeking treatment for drug addiction.
