“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” ~ Ronald Reagan
We believe that everyone, at any given time in their lives, is on a spectrum to thrive. We all bounce back and forth on this spectrum as life happens. We would love everyone to always be thriving, but we are keenly aware that’s not possible. Life throws us curveballs … we take missteps ... Inevitably, we will all feel the wind at our face at times.
It is our honor to meet each person where they are and help them move closer to thriving.
Our primary focus is to ensure all Routt County neighbors have access to basic human needs (food, shelter, & clothing) while also fostering self-sufficiency & personal growth.
Our Case Managers work with each neighbor individually to determine the best programs for their situation. It’s private and one-on-one, and we promise you’ll feel welcome.
Our 3 Food Bank locations offer supplemental food for qualifying individuals and families. With the goal of moving towards self-sufficiency, this assistance has qualifications and time limits.
Self Sufficiency & Personal Growth
Self-Sufficiency: During times of longer-term distress, we work with families in complex situations to create a plan to get back on their feet. These are unique cases in which we forge a partnership to get you back on a path to stability. In 2018, 37 families were supported through this program.
Healthcare: With the growing costs of medical care, it has become challenging for our neighbors to afford much-need medical attention. Intended to help clients attain an acceptable or improved level of medical/dental health, and to keep health problems from turning into emergency situations. Can pay for Medical fuel and transport.
Hope for the Future Scholarship: Each year, we award 10 Routt County neighbors with an opportunity to make their future brighter. The application process ends on May 1st. To give financially to support this scholarship, click here.
We know that your situation is yours and yours alone. So, if you have questions about whether your situation qualifies for help, please reach out. We are here to help.

Our Thrift Store is the workhorse for all that we give back to Routt County. It is one of the most heavily-trafficked retail stores in Steamboat, and we are proud of the quality of products offered:
- Household goods
- Sporting goods
- Other treasures for bargain shoppers.
In 2017 we added a little “chic boutique” to the corner of our store as a means to help fund even more programs. The Elevated Emporium features higher end items for bargain prices!
ALL PROFITS from our Thrift Store sales are used to fund our operations, Food Banks, and Financial Assistance Programs.
