Christina knows small actions have a lasting impact

"People have a big heart for helping others, but may not know how to get involved. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by politics or world issues, but we need to remember that small actions can have a lasting impact. Mile High United Way pulls together and amplifies the contribution you make."

Bethany learns and teaches

"[Mile High] United Way has shed light for me on the challenges our community faces... I was thrilled to learn about the Bridging the Gap program which helps connect young adults leaving the foster care system to supportive services. I had the opportunity to help some of these young people polish their professional skills through exercises like mock interviews. It was good practice for me too!"

Jordan was looking for a place to connect

"I have built relationships with so many amazing people who share my desire to strengthen the Denver community and to give back to those in need. Through these relationships, I have grown both personally and professionally."
