Boulder Mountain Resources, a program of Foothills United Way, serves Boulder County's mountain communities, Lyons, Allenspark/Raymond/Riverside, Jamestown, Ward, Gold Hill, Nederland as well as outlying unincorporated Boulder County.
Boulder Mountain Resources learned the importance of taking a leadership role and establishing presence in our mountain communities after the Fourmile Canyon Fire. Now after the second natural disaster in three years, it is clear the atmosphere is ripe for collaboration as we strive to bring resources to our mountain communities.
Boulder Mountain Resources aims to:
• Foster a relationship of advocacy and action between Foothills United Way, local government agencies, non-profits, and residents of our mountain areas.
• Take a leadership role in the Peak-to-Peak Health and Human Service Task Force.
• Support mountain communities in their preparation of community based emergency preparedness plans through a partnership with the Boulder County Office of Emergency Management and the Inter Mountain Alliance.
• Participate in the Long Term Flood Recovery Group through support of our community advocates in Lyons, Jamestown, Salina and unincorporated Boulder County.
Amy Hardy, long-time mountain resident, is our Mountain Resource Coordinator. Please don’t hesitate to contact Amy with any questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-895-3418.
