By serving Coloradans who have less power, privilege and income, and by prioritizing Coloradans of color, we keep equity at the heart of our work to bring health in reach.
Champion Health Equity
Increase community engagement and strengthen social capital among black and brown communities to identify solutions for the health disparities and inequities that currently exist within the communities they serve and to co-create a structure and systems of education that are anchored in the baseline expectation of health and total wellness of students, their families and the professionals that serve them.
Strengthening Discovery Caf�&#039;s Organizational Capacity and Community Presence
Sustain and expand existing Discovery Caf� services, expand outreach and improve services for the Latinx community and begin delivering services in two new rural Colorado communities. Support improved cultural competency and outreach to Latinx individuals, improved program evaluation, expanded fund development efforts and training/technical assistance in growing organizational leadership and capacity.
Project Support for the Colorado Safety Net Collaborative
Continue the work of the Colorado Safety Net Collaborative in supporting the safety net clinics and the marginalized communities they serve across Colorado.
Micro to Macro Moves: Investing in Infrastructure to Operationalize Healing Justice
Operationalize the principles of healing justice and codify restorative practices into an innovative model for youth-serving organizations. This requires strengthening the organization's capacity to upgrade the internal infrastructure and systems to better support the new procedures and processes that concretize values into a sustainable and replicable organizational model.
General Operating Support
Partner with grassroots organizations in the Denver Metro region, rural communities and across Colorado to promote equitable, effective affordable housing policy.

Community Organizing and Advocacy Toward Health Equity
Conduct base-building, community organizing and advocacy toward health equity as an impacted community in Southwest Denver.
