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.

  • Stories of Impact

    “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

🍽🍎The Community Market Dine Around- Call for Restaurant Partners

‼️The Vail Valley isn't an easy place to live, over 8,700 of our neighbors struggle with food insecurity, unsure where their next meal will come from.

✴️ Let's rally together and showcase the heart and soul of Eagle County through our upcoming Restaurant Week! As the mountains close down in April, we want to encourage our locals and visitors to support local businesses and local needs by dining out between April 9-14.
