Impact100 Metro Denver’s $100,000 grant winner, Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center plans to use the grant to expand their Young Adult Legal Advocacy program through the creation of four mobile legal clinics over a one year period. Each clinic will serve upwards of 25 individuals who need help resolving legal issues related to their homelessness, enabling them to find housing and jobs.
Our $52,200 grant winner, Bridge House supports homeless individuals through a program called Ready to Work. This program helps individuals who are experiencing homelessness, build their resume, and confidently seek employment outside of the program. Bridge House offers job training, paid employment, and housing through their two social enterprises. Grant plans included a graduate service network launch that would provide continuing education activities, life skills training, social outings, and on-going support to program graduates in order to increase their programs 90% success rate in years two and three.
The $38,000 grant winner, The Blue Bench provides sexual assault prevention and care throughout the state of Colorado and Metro Denver.
