Caring for Denver Foundation helping maternal programs

Maternal mental health is a critical issue for birthers worldwide, yet many individuals face barriers to accessing care and further face stigma and shame. In Denver, BIPOC communities, in particular, frequently lack access to culturally responsive services to meet support needs and address mental health concerns from grief and loss or the impacts of trauma. Funded through a portion of Denver city sales tax, Caring for Denver has awarded more than $1.7 million in grants to four organizations that provide mental health services to BIPOC moms including Para Ti Mujer, Birth Squad, La Cocina, and Adam’s Purpose. Caring for Denver was highlighted on Denver7 for its efforts to bridge these care gaps.
