Have been noticing Colorado Gives Day promotions in the email signatures that come through your inbox? I have… Don’t ignore them! Colorado Gives and the Community First Foundation are so important to a growing number of nonprofits in Colorado. What started as a small way for the Community First Foundation to help promote the importance of giving across our diverse state is now a vital resource for almost 2000 nonprofits that reside within our Colorado borders.
Friends of the Haven is honored to be one of them. We are proud of The Haven and what they accomplish in changing the lives of women and children, and to be completely honest, families. The Haven reaches all across our state to ensure that women struggling with mental illness and substance addiction learn to shed their mask and emerge strong, determined, and capable women that can move beyond a stigma. If you have not witnessed this beautiful process, I encourage you to view the Haven Showcase, the Execeptionary Women feature on PBS, and the 9 News story…even better I invite you to come out to Fort Logan to meet any one of 65 women who are working toward that end.
As Colorado Gives Day approaches, Friends of the Haven encourages you to visit the Colorado Gives Day site, find a nonprofit, or nonprofits, that you feel a connection to, and discover, perhaps again, the joy that comes from giving. Giving time. Giving resources. Simply Give.
