We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be choosing a nonprofit or nonprofits to give a portion of our profits to each month of this year. This project – called Joy in Action – will begin this January. We invite you to join us in changing the world for the better throughout this next year!
This month we’re partnering with two Fort Collins, Colorado nonprofits: Homeward Alliance and Neighbor-to-Neighbor. Both groups are committed to making homelessness here rare, short-lived and non-recurring.
These organizations help prevent homelessness in the first place, provide shelter opportunities when it does happen and empower people to build a path to home security through homeownership. They are clearly impactful in the fight against homelessness in Fort Collins by tirelessly advocating for humane city and county policies to address the complexity of the issue at both the individual and systemic levels.
The organizations work to create permanent supportive housing projects, housing assistance programs and employment training. They also provide counseling on eviction, reverse mortgage and foreclosure. (Those are just the highlights, we assure you!)
As we learned more about the impact that both Homeward Alliance and Neighbor-to-Neighbor have within this community of over 160,000 people, we saw alignment between our missions. They work to share hope for the future of our community, while we strive to enable hope by supporting this kind of critical grassroots work.
Joy in Action finds and supports sustainable and dignifying programs that help people build better lives. We’re incredibly inspired by the work done by Neighbor-to-Neighbor and Homeward Alliance in our hometown — we are confident they make our world a better place. We also know there’s much to be done beyond our community, and that’s why we’re returning to Uganda for Joy in Action next month.
