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 programs like Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) and additional innovations that directly impact local families and contribute to the resiliency of our community.
The Issue: 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.
Our Solution to poverty
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.
JPP collaborates with community partners to provide programs that focus on financial literacy, family wellbeing, 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!
Carrie’s family is doing amazing, and we are so proud of the work she has accomplished over the last several years!
