MEET JOSIE

Josie is a 6-year-old girl living here in Routt County.  She is beautiful, kind, and courageous … but she lives in hunger every day.  While most kids her age eat 21 meals and 14 snacks each week, Josie only gets 4 meals … she has school 4 days per week and relies solely on their Free Lunch Program.  Because of LiftUp’s Rocket Pack program, she now gets 6 snacks a day to give her more nutrition and energy. Learn how you can feed hungry kids in Routt County.

MEET SARA

Sara’s husband left her and her 3 kids last year. Since then, she’s been working 2 jobs to keep her family afloat. Through LiftUp's utility program, Sara was able to pay her heat bill, keep the heat on, and spare her kids from Rocky Mountain cold winter weather. Learn how you can help neighbors in crisis.

MEET JOE

Joe grew up in poverty and worked tirelessly to end the cycle for his family.  He worked hard to support his wife and 3 kids, but with rising costs of living and only a high school education, he just couldn’t seem to get ahead financially.  LiftUp’s Hope for the Future scholarship gave Joe the opportunity to go back to school for welding. Learn how you can help your neighbors on their path from survive to thrive.
