Powering collective action to meet local needs.

We are a unique community foundation, providing responsive solutions for our neighbors in need. We address food insecurity, provide health & wellness resources, support nonprofit capacity building and help build community leadership among people of color. We empower individuals and families to gain a hand up, not a hand out.

For many, our picturesque county is also a picture of soaring costs and the inability to make ends meet. Many in our community rely on our programs to help fill the gaps in their lives when they need it most. 

Offering barrier-free access to vital health resources.

MIRA Mobile Van

Providing access to free, nutrient-rich food across the county.

Supporting leadership capacity building for people of color.

Elevar - business owner

Help change the trajectory of someone’s life in the Eagle Valley.

    “The community really trusts the people who work and volunteer on the MIRA bus. We are able to take some of the services that are offered at clinics and hospitals and bring them to the community, to people’s homes who might not otherwise be able to access care. Most of the patients we see don’t have insurance, so helping them to navigate the system and provide basic health screenings is critical to their health and wellness.” – Kyler Hijmans, Nurse Practitioner

Empowering community members to build their own capacity as authentic leaders, advocates, and respected community members will lead to broader systemic shifts.

🌻 Elevar se convirtió en el tercer programa emblemático de EVCF a través de un enfoque en el Desarrollo de Capacidades Comunitarias.

🌱 Our collective dedication is paramount in shaping our community into an exceptional place to live, work, and nurture families. Every endeavor we undertake, every decision we make, must reverberate with the mission of fortifying and enriching our community's fabric. 
🌷With compassion, dedication, and generosity, we are working to create a hopeful, inclusive, and equitable community, where residents feel connected, supported, and uplifted. And we, in turn, are awe-inspired by the continuous show of commitment to strengthening community all around us. Nurturing the health and wellness of our entire community is paramount to community building and the essential thriving of all members. We are fortunate to witness these contributions on many first-hand basis. 
🌺 Let us recognize this compassion in spades as we celebrate our friends at Chics Couture for donating upscale clothing to several local nonprofit organizations, including EVCF and our programs, to empower community members and help uplift one's sense of self. Our program MIRA Bus -  Camión MIRA in turn created special Mother's Day events right on local, high need communities, sharing garments with individuals who likely otherwise would never be afforded access to such a beautiful assortment.
🌻It's heartbreaking when local businesses are unable to keep their doors open (and speaks volumes to the grand importance of supporting local businesses to help communities thrive overall), we remain awe-inspired by the give back commitment in helping to uplift community members in need, helping to build a stronger, more cohesive and more equitable community. Even in troubled times, when individuals, organizations, and businesses rally to serve a greater good, we see the power of community shine. And that is truly something special. 

🌸💚🌸Boundless appreciation for being true community leaders, Chics Couture.
