Our goals are driven by neighborhood leaders, parents, students, and teachers, who together represent 33 organizations from across 16 private and public sectors.

Somos una coalición comunitaria de personas y organizaciones en el Condado Eagle, Colorado.

Estamos colaborando para crear un sistema comunitario que apoye eficazmente a la salud y al aprendizaje de todos los niños y sus familias.

Collectively, we are challenging the vast disparities in our community, by joining youth and families in the fight to overcome them.

More than 12,000 children live and learn in our county, reflecting a 26 percent increase in the child population since 2000. The cost of living also continues to skyrocket for our families, who spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing and struggle to maintain a self-sufficiency standard at 347 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).

For some of our families the struggle is compounded: two-thirds of children with foreign born parents live in poverty; the graduation rate for Hispanic students is 66 percent, a stark contrast to the 93 percent graduation rate of Caucasian students; and the rate of births to women without a high school diploma or GED is 19 percent.

In contrast to the current landscape, InteGreat! envisions an inclusive community in which all children are loved; we believe that if we
• engage families and youth;
• share knowledge;
• align systems and resources; and
• increase access to quality opportunities

THEN, our youth will have the skills to be successful in life.

In 2016, we will propel our vision through the following initiatives:

Summer Lunch
Neighborhood Navigators
Data Sharing
