Women United Luncheon


September 22, 2022

Thank you to everyone who joined us and made this year’s Mile High United Way Women United Luncheon a success! During the program, Mile High United Way’s own Catalina Gonsales and Yazmin Lujan Saenz demonstrated the power of investing in women and girls, and the ripple effect it has on generations to come. After a transformative experience in our Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program, these women are now a force for positive change on behalf of mothers and children across Metro Denver. 

We also heard from our amazing guest speaker, Ciara, who shared how the Why Not You? Foundation is changing the narrative for girls of all ages throughout Colorado and across the country. And we honored our Frances Wisebart Jacobs Award winner, Sue Carver, for her decades-long commitment to philanthropy and to the United Way movement.

For 135 years, Mile High United Way has been there for Colorado families. Because of you, our story continues as we look toward the future to ensure every family has the opportunity to thrive.


Women United Initiative

Through our Women United Initiative, we connect women to wraparound support like access to safe and stable housing, new job opportunities, quality early childcare, and so much more. By attending this year’s event and investing in this initiative, you are helping women and girls write their own story and pursue their dreams.
