Strengthening our Community to be
United and Integrated
The needs of the community have grown over the last four years. Roughly 20% of the Routt County population lives below the self- sufficiency standard. The immigrant population in our community has increased and represents 37 countries. Immigrants add to our community with diversity, strength, collective knowledge, culture, and arts. Through Routt County United Way and Integrated Community’s work we help clients to a path of self-sufficiency.
In the last four years, Integrated Community’s client workload has grown to serving 1,752 clients in a year and staff has expanded to a total of six. Routt County United Way supports 25 health and human service agencies affecting more than half of the youth in our county. All United Way programs have grown and Women United has grown to more than 130 members. United Way’s staff has grown to three full time professionals. Both organizations have a far reach into the communities of Routt County and into people’s lives.
The 443 Oak Nonprofit Center is expanding to meet the needs of Integrated Community and Routt County United Way’s growth. Together, we plan to build an 2166 sq ft addition on the property that is attached to the existing building through a breezeway. There will be increased office space for greater efficiency and allowing for greater confidentiality for our staff and clients. In addition, we will have an all-purpose conference room available to the community.
