Strengthen community health

At The Colorado Health Foundation, we believe that keeping equity at the heart of our work will lead us to better health. We know that all communities have their own unique assets and often have the best ideas for solving their own health-related challenges. When community members who experience the problem themselves identify the issue and then work to generate and implement the solutions, they are able to raise their collective voice and strengthen their own power.
