What is an Anti-Event Fundraiser, you ask?


Well, it's an event unlike any other because, well, it's not an event at all! That's right, you can leave your formal attire, fancy shoes, and dance moves at home because this fundraiser is all about embracing the comfort of your own space while making a meaningful impact.

Thanks to Metro West Housing Solutions and Foothills Housing Authority, your contribution to our Anti-Event Fundraiser goes twice as far. Every dollar helps JPP families access essential resources and coaching services, empowering them toward self-sufficiency. Donate today and be a part of something incredible!

Generational Poverty

1 in 10 Coloradans live in poverty. That's more than 558,200 residents that lack the financial resources necessary to meet their basic needs.

Jeffco Prosperity Partners

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 monthly income by $1,800.

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.

Moving from poverty to prosperity -
one child, one family at a time.

JPP Success Story: Carrie

When Carrie joined JPP in 2019, she was working as a part time server and looking to create a stable life for her family. Fast forward four years and Carrie has now received a promotion at her dream job working for the VA and recently just purchased her first vehicle ever with a credit score of almost 800!
