Who we are

Jeffco Human Services Foundation is a nonprofit agency connecting with community organizations and individuals who share our mission- to break the cycle of generational poverty. We aim to decrease dependency on government benefits and give families the tools they need to thrive, not just survive.

Our vision

Our vision is that every person in our community has access to quality education, employment opportunities, and heath care to attain self-sufficiency and prevent poverty in future generations.

Our purpose

The purpose of our organization is to incubate and promote innovative programming to move low-income families to economic self-sufficiency by improving mental health and well-being, building economic assets, promoting education and post-secondary education, and advancing employment.

 

We work to close opportunity and achievement gaps for children and families living in poverty by employing the two-generation (Two-Gen) approach.

Our impact

The foundation supports and provides funding to the Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) program who help families move out of poverty and cultivate a life of prosperity.
