Community Resilience

Foothills United Way is driving results through collaborative action in Boulder and Broomfield counties with an emphasis on community resilience. Our goal is to address community challenges with innovative solutions that prevent problems from spiraling out of control and becoming more costly. We’re investing in collaborative solutions where expert organizations, local nonprofits, government organizations/agencies, faith communities and businesses link assets to make measurable progress.
