Mountain Family Health Centers wishes to celebrate our federal, state, and local partners along with generous individuals who have made gifts during this exceptional time with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every gift has made a difference. Grants and donations are helping Mountain Family address a variety of evolving needs related to COVID-19, from acquiring more Personal Protective Equipment to increasing our medical and mental health telehealth visits, to increasing our pro-active outreach to our patients by telephone and in our clinics.
We are deeply grateful to have received funding from a variety of sources. The SBA Paycheck Protection Program and the CARES Act stimulus package have made a vital impact on our ability to continue serving 21,000 patients. We salute two funds and philanthropists from the Aspen Community Foundation that have made significant grants, including the 2020 Rescue Fund and the Marx Family Advised Fund. We have received a gift from the City of Glenwood Springs to support a new School-Based Health Center which will open in Glenwood Springs this coming fall. Generous grants have been made by The Colorado Health Foundation Relief Fund, Caring for Colorado, the Colorado COVID Relief Fund, the Direct Relief – COVID-19 Response Fund for Community Health, the United Health Foundation, the El Pomar Foundation, the Aspen Community Foundation and Basalt Gives, and the Colorado Hospital Association. We also received in-kind gifts from Delta Dental and All Valley Women’s Care. We are also deeply grateful to the numerous individuals, families, and patients who responded to our online appeal featuring MFHC Family Nurse Practitioner Jenny Lang and one of her patients. In addition, we are appreciative of our collaboration with Pitkin County Department of Human Services helping to develop 20 videos featuring how to access Medicaid and its benefits.
Investing in Mountain Family through a gift goes a long way to help us care for over 21,000 patients in Pitkin, Eagle, and Garfield counties. Join many who have made a significant difference for us by making a gift here.
The health of our communities and taking care of all patients, regardless of ability to pay, is our number one priority. We are so thankful for your continuing support and generosity.
