Collaborative efforts bring greater impact.

Rooted in a belief that we are better together, Foothills United Way brings together community members and organizations across Boulder and Broomfield counties to build equitable, collaborative strategies that leverage community assets: united, we can achieve our vision of future in which all people can achieve their full potential.

Early Childhood Success

 We are supporting collaborative solutions, so families have the best access of care from the moment they know they're pregnant. 

Attainable Housing

 Without a place to live, no individual or family can escape the reliance on subsidized services. We're working to make housing affordable to everyone. 

Community Resilience

Our goal is to address community challenges with innovative solutions that prevent problems from spiraling out of control and becoming more costly.
