When the school bell rings at the end of every day, thousands of kids across metro Denver pour out of classrooms and into their afterschool routines. For some, this means heading home where they are met by a parent who helps them with homework before driving them to basketball practice and piano lessons. For others in our community, afterschool options are far less certain, stable, and safe.

At Boys & Girls Clubs, we know the hours between 3:00–6:00 p.m. are the peak hours for juvenile crime and the time when kids are most likely to engage in risky behaviors. We also know that today in our metro Denver community, children are facing obstacles more challenging than ever before.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with opportunities to engage in programs that help them achieve academic success, take charge of their health by building healthy habits that will stick with them throughout their lives, and foster the skills they need to become leaders in their communities.

With 15 locations in the metro Denver area and a summer camp, Boys & Girls Clubs are there for kids where and when they need us most. Our membership is open to all youth ages 6–18, and for $2 annually, our Club members have access to a wealth of programming that has the power to positively shape and change their lives. Your donations and support of Boys & Girls Clubs makes a difference for thousands of kids and families in our community.

Since 1995, the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust (CCALT) has helped to conserve more than 477,000 acres of productive agricultural land, wildlife habitat and open space across Colorado. This is an area larger than Rocky Mountain National Park and the city and county of Denver combined.

CCALT was formed by the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) to help Colorado’s ranchers and farmers protect their agricultural lands and encourage the intergenerational transfer of family farms and ranches. In the past twenty-one years, CCALT has partnered with landowners across Colorado to conserve the landscapes that define Colorado’s natural beauty. Our work has helped farming and ranching families across Colorado pay down debt, save for retirement, pay for long-term health care and college education, and preserve their agricultural heritage. It has also helped to preserve the natural resources that make Colorado such a special place.

By conserving hundreds of thousands of acres through easements that last forever, CCALT and our partners have a real, widespread, and lasting impact. Vibrant, well-maintained lands are the foundation of healthy communities. The places that CCALT helps to conserve provide the basis for fresh food and water, natural beauty, clean air, outdoor adventure, and sustainable economies. From rural towns to Colorado’s cities, land conservation improves our daily lives and lays the groundwork for a better future.

Mental health disorders can range from depression, anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, to more severe mental illnesses including personality disorder, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. In Colorado, over 150,000 adults and 52,000 children are living with serious mental health conditions. People struggling with mental illness who do not receive treatment are at greater risk of hospitalization, chronic medical conditions, academic failure, unemployment, becoming involved with the justice system, substance abuse, homelessness, or suicide.

But we can help! Last year, Jefferson Center cared for over 18,000 enrolled clients, a nearly 28% increase over the previous year, and provided education and prevention services to more than 10,000 community members. This total number of people would fill every seat in the Pepsi Center nearly twice! Each client works with his or her clinician to develop an individualized treatment plan that assesses strengths, identifies goals related to recovery, and outlines treatment and support needed. Jefferson Center is committed to providing valuable, cost-effective programs and services to all those in need, and support from community members ensures that everyone will continue to have access to these resources. Together we can create a future where mental health matters and care is accessible to all.

“Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world.” –Norman Borlaug, Nobel Peace Prize Winner

One in seven Coloradans face hunger. Kids are particularly challenged. One in five Colorado children don’t know where they will get their next meal. Locally, 69% of students and virtually all Metro Caring students qualify for free or reduced cost meals. Can you imagine your own children starting the day without food in their belly? While many go hungry, 40% of all food produced in our country ends up in landfills.

Metro Caring is the leader and model for hunger prevention and food waste reduction for Denver and the nation. Simultaneously fighting hunger and promoting sustainability, Metro Caring annually rescues and redistributes over 2.3 million pounds of nutritious food (72% fresh) that would otherwise have gone to waste. Metro Caring’s strategic approach to ending hunger includes a free, fresh-foods market, nutrition and gardening education, and tools for self-sufficiency such as its Seeds for Success job-training program, financial literacy education, and state-wide ID procurement. Over 300 weekly volunteers contribute to daily operations.

Recognizing the link between hunger and food waste, Metro Caring is also leading Save the Food, Share the Food, a city-wide consumer education and engagement campaign aimed at reducing food waste and food need in our community.
With your continued help, we will achieve our mutual goal to end hunger in Denver.

Project Sanctuary was the first organization in the country to recognize and build its services upon the fact that the whole family serves, and the best way to “support the troops” is by supporting the entire family. Today it is a national leader in providing holistic services to our military families, hosting its six-day intake retreats in five states—Colorado, California, Utah, Texas, and New York.
