Mission & Cornerstones

Our Mission
Improve the health of Coloradans.

Our Vision
That across Colorado, each of us can say: "We have all we need to live healthy lives."

Our Belief
Health and well-being can be in reach for everyone. So, every day, we collaborate with organizations and communities across the state to break down the many systemic inequities that stand in the way of health. When every Coloradan has the power to be healthy, our entire state is stronger.

Our Cornerstones
To reach our mission, our work and that which we expect of our partners is rooted in three cornerstones:

  1. With the ultimate goal of improving the health of Coloradans, we do everything with the intent of creating health equity.
  2. We focus on those across the state who have less power, privilege, and income, and as a result, are less likely to be healthy. We prioritize people of color, who are disproportionately impacted by systemic and historic barriers that stand in the way of health and well-being.
  3. In partnership with the communities we serve, we support and fund community-informed solutions that drive health equity and racial justice.
