About us

Jeffco Prosperity Partners (previously Jeffco Human Services Foundation) is a nonprofit, community-based organization created to promote innovations that move families from poverty to prosperity. We partner with initiatives that provide services and opportunities that enable Colorado families to thrive in our community.

We support the Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) program and additional innovations that directly impact local families and contribute to the resiliency of our community.

Coffee for a Cause at Windy Saddle!

Throughout the month of February, Windy Saddle, our local coffee shop in Golden, Colorado, will generously donate a portion of its sales to support JPP's mission.

Whether you're grabbing your morning coffee, indulging in a delicious treat, or enjoying a hearty lunch, your contribution helps empower families in need. Spread the word, bring your friends and family, and let's come together to support JPP families in building brighter futures.

Honoring Our Dear Friend, Ali Lasell

Ali Lasell

Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) Program

Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) is a community, supporting families moving from poverty to prosperity. JPP uses a holistic, multi-generation approach to help students earn diplomas and parents reach self-defined prosperity. 

On average, families engaged in JPP for a duration of four years have increased their annual income by $32,000.

JPP collaborates with community partners to provide programs that focus on financial literacy, family well-being, job skill development, health and wellness, education, and building social capital.
