For over 10 years, it has been the mission of Invest in Kids to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable children and families throughout Colorado.
Working in partnership with local communities, we identify, introduce, implement and ensure the success of research-based, proven programs.
What makes Invest in Kids different is our unique approach to finding, delivering and measuring the effectiveness of the programs we provide.
- First, we identify programs with proven track records or methodologies for success.
- Second, we introduce these programs to communities to see where and how they can net the greatest impact.
- Third, we implement the programs through agency partners, in collaboration with community leaders and other key constituents.
- Lastly, we ensure each program’s ongoing success through strict adherence to guidelines and measurement of results.
Invest in Kids is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded by a group of attorneys and other community leaders who were concerned about the increasing achievement gap between higher and lower income children and the increasing number of serious crimes committed by kids from a low-income background. This unique team of professional and socially-minded individuals helped create the foundation of standards and execution essential to our high level of effectiveness. Over the years, that commitment to success has not wavered.
Today, our board of directors still enjoys the active participation of many founding members.
