Coloradans for the Common Good

Coloradans for the Common Good (formerly IAF Colorado) brings together religious and civic organizations with the purposes of strengthening citizen leadership, developing trust across a community’s dividing lines, and taking action on community issues identified by local community leaders. CCG is addressing such issues as education, improving internet access for students, better access to school meals during the pandemic, and affordable housing.

Community Table

Community of Grace sponsors Community Table, formerly Arvada Food Bank, for many years, by both food donations and monetary donations. Our neighbors face food insecurity as well as homelessness. An astonishing 99.17% of the individuals who receive services from Community Table, live at less than 100% of the poverty level. Hunger remains a serious problem in Jefferson County, where 1 in 10 children live in a family that struggles with hunger. Hunger affects the way children learn and develop. Hungry children can even face more behavioral and social problems. Without proper nourishment, their lives and futures are put at risk. Kids who eat will miss less school, get better grades and are more likely to graduate. This organization needs food donations as well as monetary gifts to help with rent assistance and health needs, especially during this difficult time of the Covid pandemic.

Mile High Ministries (Joshua Station)

Joshua Station serves 30 families with housing, mental health counseling, youth and adult education, job services, and life skills training.

Our services include: GED preparation, English language instruction, basic reading, writing, and math instruction, computer skills training, and job readiness training including resume writing, completing applications, and interviewing skills. Partnerships are being developed with employers to fill job vacancies that pay at least $15.00 per hour and offer health insurance and other benefits. Outcomes this past year show a high percentage of success achieved in each of the programs at Joshua Station.

HIV CareLink

HIV CareLink is a Christian ministry of love and hope, committed to HIV/AIDS prevention, support and education. It was founded 25 years ago to build a bridge between the Church and people affected by HIV. They provide prevention services through their Safe Project in high schools, pastoral and practical care to people living with HIV, and work to educate the church regarding HIV/AIDS. Their work is done mainly by caring Christian volunteers who wish to be involved in HIV/AIDS ministry.

Restoring Connections

The community based non-profit Restoring Connections, formerly known as The Center for Spirituality at Work, seeks to change lives through spiritual transformation and social justice. Its Re-entry and Soul Care programs connect incarcerated and recently released women from the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility with Soul Care providers. These trained volunteers offer women the support they need and allow them to take charge of their future. The volunteers are a source of emotional and spiritual support, which in turn, reduces recidivism and enables spiritual growth for all involved.
