About 142,000 U.S. citizens in Colorado have at least one family member who is undocumented. 1 in 11 children in Colorado have at least one undocumented family member. When an undocumented family member is deported, American families are separated. Our Legal Defense Fund helps keep families together.
Downtown Ventures, the nonprofit arm of Downtown Partnership, enlivens Downtown Colorado Springs through the arts, historic preservation, special events and public benefit programs. If you’ve done the First Friday art walk, enjoyed Skate in the Park, found hidden gems on a walking tour, or fallen in love with Art on the Streets, you’re the reason Downtown Ventures is respected as a force for good in the city center.
Habitat for Humanity of Teller County builds attainable homes with affordable mortgages for residents of Teller County. Our current project, Trailhead Townhomes, is an 18-unit neighborhood build in Woodland Park for Teller County's workforce. We want to see our small-business owners, teachers, city workers and others who create a viable and sustainable community able to live and work in the same place.
Libraries, at their core, are about connecting people with resources they need. PPLD provides community members opportunities to gain new skills and access a wealth of information and resources, while reducing barriers to access. Whether through books and databases or workforce development programs, these resources and opportunities change individual lives and build community.
We’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. We fully believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs.
TSC provides transportation, case management counseling, caregiver respite support, meals, homemaker services and safety related handyman repairs (grab bars). Our services support the continued health and well-being of the over 800 seniors we serve. Many seniors live alone without family nearby, we become their advocate to ensure they receive the support they need.
Due to discrimination, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (/DD) often have little opportunity to participate in society, inhibiting access to basic human rights. The Arc PPR’s Building for Change campus will help those with I/DD to be empowered together through personal development, life skills training, and expanded advocacy efforts, while involving the community in improving the culture.
Westside CARES is neighbors helping neighbors. It affirms human dignity by ameliorating the conditions of poverty and preventing homelessness through food, clothing, laundry, health-care, ID cards, mail, utilities or rent, and creates a community that values all of its members. Each year the nearly 22,000 neighbors we serve can rely on a safe, welcoming space to access the services they need to fill the gaps.
