Making a Difference in Denver
Supporting people in need with dignity, respect, accountability, and empowerment since 1960.
Engaging high-risk subcultures to reduce alienation and violence
Gangs recruit new members when they are young – often before they reach their teenage years. We facilitate alternatives to gang involvement including youth leadership development and after school programming.
Closing the gaps in food insecurity
One out of seven children in Colorado experiences food insecurity. This means that over 14 percent of kids living in our state lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food and may experience hunger on a regular basis.
Curbing recidivism through empowerment and support
50 percent of individuals released from incarceration in Colorado will return to prison within three years. Our programs reduce recidivism (a return to criminal behavior), keeping families together and improving public safety.
