United Way of Larimer County turns 60

Join us in thanking United Way of Larimer County for 60 years of strengthening the region and serving as a model of nonprofit collaboration and genuine goodwill for the local community.

A woman, a priest, two ministers, and a rabbi is not the opening of a tall tale; it’s how Colorado’s first United Way began.  Click here to read the full story.

Kudos to Project Self-Sufficiency client

In 2014, Andy, a single dad and a participant in the Project Self-Sufficiency of Loveland-Fort Collins program, was looking for something in the college catalog that promised a high-salaried career so he would be able to provide for his three young boys. Little did he know that in 2018, he would graduate from Colorado State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and would be employed in a career that paid over $33 per hour.
