The primary objective of The Epworth Foundation is to provide stability, opportunity and a sense of community for the families in crisis who come through our doors. We do our best not to turn anyone away because, in today’s economy, our services are needed more than ever.
According to feedback from many of our first-time clients, we’re their last stop after they’ve exhausted all other options. Each year, The Epworth Foundation helps between 10,000 and 12,000 individuals and families who reside within the state of Colorado with particular emphasis in the 80205-zip code. That area includes the Denver neighborhoods of Cole, Clayton, Five Points, Whittier and portions of Curtis Park to the west and City Park to the east.
Since 2003 we’ve distributed over 50,000 Thanksgiving Baskets and assisted more than 6,000 youth through Talent Camp, YES! Academy, Family to Family and our annual Christmas gifting program. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a host of charitable services as part of its mission to promote and support healthy families, with an emphasis on children.
The Epworth Foundation maintains four areas of interest: Youth; Family; Hunger Prevention and Health.
