All in this Together
Founded and funded by Denver, Caring for Denver Foundation was established on November 6, 2018 with 70% voter approval to support the mental health and substance misuse challenges facing the City and County of Denver.
Championed by State Representative Leslie Herod, the ballot initiative was simple, yet powerful. For every $100 spent in Denver, 25 cents totaling over $35 million dollars per year goes toward addressing the mental health and substance misuse needs in our city. And with the critical responsibility we’ve been entrusted, we’re on a mission to grow community-informed solutions, dismantle stigma, and turn Denver’s desire to help into action.
