Centers for Family Opportunity
Mile High United Way believes that all families and individuals should have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to become financially stable. Together with Denver Public Schools’ Family and Youth Engagement department and the Mountain Resource Center, families now have easy access to a bundle of resources to help them succeed.
Through two new “Centers for Family Opportunity” funded by Mile High United Way, partner organizations provide free English-language and GED classes, as well as help with tax preparation, financial coaching, legal assistance, utility assistance, veteran services and more.
The two Centers, located at College View Elementary in Southwest Denver and at the Mountain Resource Center in Conifer, were designed based on a proven national model of bringing together best-in-their-field resources in a centralized location. Programs and resources offered at each location are customized based on the needs of the communities they serve.
