Veterans Behavioral Health Project
Through our Community Grants Program and donor-advised fund holders, The Denver Foundation has a long history of support for organizations that help veterans as part of their client base - including the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, Jefferson Center for Mental Health, and many other groups. In 2013, The Denver Foundation launched The Veterans Behavioral Health Services Project, an effort to help veterans in the Denver Metro area transition successfully to civilian life.
The Denver Foundation believes that “Veterans and Service members are untapped national assets, having acquired experiences and skills while serving in the military that have significant value in the workplace and communities.” Veterans have developed technical and leadership skills, maturity, discipline, and a desire to continue to be of service. The Denver Foundation is launching this grant program to help veterans transition successfully to civilian life and to increase their ability to contribute to our community.
The Veterans Behavioral Health Services Project is a new effort by The Denver Foundation to help veterans in the Denver Metro area transition successfully to civilian life.
The Denver Foundation issued a request for proposals for grants to support organizations that serve the behavioral health needs of veterans and their families in the Denver metropolitan area. Grants are now being made to 10 nonprofit organizations that address these needs. The Denver Foundation made this investment to help veterans transition successfully to civilian life and to increase their ability to contribute to our community.
