Your generous support of United Way of Larimer County provides the following impact on our our community each year:
Nearly 700 children in Thompson and Estes Park School districts provided 1:1 daily literacy tutoring to help them
reach grade-level proficiency in reading through the Colorado Reading Corps program
More than $100,000 distributed in childcare scholarships to help children start kindergarten ready to learn
After-school and summer enrichment activities to nearly 5,500 youth
Isaiah was born with a rare syndrome causing a cleft lip and palate, heart defects and developmental delays. United Way of Larimer County provides funding to local agency Respite Care for childcare scholarships for kids like Isaiah. With this funding, families pay an average of $5.62 per hour rather than
the actual cost of $21 per hour for specialized care and learning program for their young children.
He is now a vibrant seven year-old who is blooming thanks to the support of United Way and Respite Care.
600 low-income families with childcare scholarships to help maintain employment
More than 1,800 nights of shelter provided through Winter Overflow Shelter programs
during the season's coldest nights
5,200 individuals participated in programs to increase income
More than 9,000 connections made to community resources through
United Way's 2-1-1 Information and Referral program
Dennis, Bethany and Bonefacio Jaramillo lived in a hotel for more than a year after Dennis became disabled and could no longer work his manufacturing job and they lost their home. Even though Bethany was working full time, they were on the verge of living in their car. Through United Way's 2-1-1, they were connected to Neighbor to Neighbor, placed in stable housing and are now thriving. With funding from United Way, Neighbor to Neighbor helped 63 families like the Jaramillos prevent eviction just last year.
