Mile High United Way Supports Families
Through three interconnected Community Priorities — giving all children a strong start, supporting education and academic success, and creating economic opportunity for all — we make a meaningful difference in the lives of those with greatest need in our community.
Our Community Priorities
Giving all children a strong start
Ensuring all children enter kindergarten ready to succeed.
SUPPORTING EDUCATION AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS
Building educational success through partnerships schools, families, and communities.
CREATING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL
Ensuring people can meet their basic needs and have opportunities to move toward economic success.
Every day, our 211 Help Center staff work tirelessly to connect families across Metro Denver to the resources they need. Three Mile High United Way staff recently received recognition for their leadership and service in their roles related to the 211 Help Center.
Volunteers are critical to the work of Tax Help Colorado, including 15-year-old Chanda, who volunteered for 45 hours near her home in Thornton this year. Learn more about how Tax Help Colorado helps families build toward economic stability.
The average school supply list can cost over $100 per student. Our 2023 Back to School Bash provided 500 students with new backpacks and supplies to support families.
We believe our communities are strongest when small, local businesses thrive. Through our Personal Investment Enterprise (PIE) program, we’re investing in small business owners, like Shellby, to support their dreams of growth.
From connecting families to quality early childhood education and supporting migrant families to helping middle- and low-income residents access valuable tax credits, we are working toward a brighter future for all Coloradans.
