United Way of Larimer County is proud to announce its newest Innovation Grant recipient, the Loveland Housing Authority. The $20,000 grant will support the launch of the Loveland Housing Authority’s new Kids Club. Using an evidence-based education model for youth and their parents, Orchard Place residents will soon have access to after-school enrichment and academic programming to help their kids succeed in school.
More than 300 kids live at Orchard Place, and the population is expected to double in the next five years. Kids Club and the Loveland Housing Authority bring stable housing, early intervention, academic support and parent engagement together to maximize the positive impact on youth living with poverty in affordable housing communities.
“All parents want their children to be successful and have a fulfilling life," said Sam Betters, Executive Director of the Loveland Housing Authority. "This United Way grant will assist parents and their children in realizing that dream and helping to break that cycle of poverty.”
Larimer County nonprofits are welcome to apply for the United Way’s Innovation Grant all year long. We are committed to funding nonprofits who are striving to improve Larimer County youth and education, and family financial stability. Learn more about our Innovation Grant process.
