Caring for Denver Foundation was founded and funded with overwhelming voter support to address Denver’s mental health and substance misuse needs. Guided by community input, the organization has funded more than $82.2 million in the areas of alternatives to jail, care provision, community-centered solutions, youth, and special initiatives since it began.
As part of its founding ordinance, Caring for Denver conducts a “Community Check In” every three years to see how mental health and substance misuse is affecting Denver community members and the people they care about. This ensures Caring for Denver can adapt to Denver’s changing needs, and that everyone in Denver has the opportunity to influence the foundation’s work and priorities.
Please take the 15-minute 2022 Community Check In Survey to share how mental health and substance misuse is showing up for you and the people you care about. Your input will help Caring for Denver understand where its funding can be most impactful. You will have the option to enter a drawing to receive a $25 Amazon gift card through October 9.
