ABOUT CARING FOR DENVER FOUNDATION
In 2018, 70% of Denver voters said YES to raising funds to help heal members of our community dealing with mental health and substance misuse issues. Each of us is impacted in some way and tens of thousands of Denverites can’t afford or find treatment they need.
Together, we showed we have the #PowerTo help and now we can act.
