Strengthen Community Health
Why is this important?
No one understands the unique challenges that a community faces better than the individuals that live in them. We believe communities deserve the opportunity to elevate their strengths and solve for challenges alongside partners who show up and understand the issues they face.
What are we doing in this area?
By partnering with communities as they identify and tackle health-related challenges, and investing in quality food and affordable housing, we are creating a foundation for which communities can develop locally-specific solutions that lead to health equity.
What are our priorities?
We focus our work in the three following priorities:
- Community Solutions: Our goal is to partner with communities on locally-specific solutions that lead to healthy communities, so that they succeed at solving their most important health challenges.
- Food Access and Security: Our goal is to ensure Coloradans have enough affordable, nutritious food, so they have healthy food and won't go hungry.
- Affordable Housing: Our goal is to support access to affordable, safe and high-quality housing options, so we can reduce the number of low-income Coloradans who spend more than 30 percent of their incomes on housing.
How do we support this area?
The Foundation is bringing health in reach for all Coloradans by engaging closely with communities across the state through investing, policy advocacy, learning and capacity building.
