How The Program Works

We work collaboratively with small business owners to first understand their needs. Participants are then connected with skilled Mile High United Way volunteers that provide personalized and no-cost consulting in areas of accounting, marketing, legal support, and other business-critical functions to help owners reach their growth potential.
