Community Goals

Our agenda is the community's agenda— we stand with the residents, business leaders, and policymakers—to take action together and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those with greatest need. We are changing the odds for the children, families, and individuals in Metro Denver.

Today in Metro Denver, nearly 300,000 people are living in poverty and struggle to have what they need for a successful life.

They aren’t able to easily access stable housing, quality child care, a good education, or jobs to support their families.

We are working to change these odds through four inter-connected community impact goals:

Giving Children a Strong Start

Ensuring all children receive the early childhood development they need to enter school ready to succeed.

Learn More

Reading Matters

Ensuring all children are reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade.

Learn More

Developing Tomorrow's Talent

Ensuring all youth graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education or the workforce.

Creating Economic Opportunity For All

Ensuring people can meet their basic needs and are afforded every opportunity to move toward economic success.
