Everyone deserves a healthy meal. But in some communities, healthy food simply isn't available. The GrowHaus is a non-profit urban farm and market in one such community - northeast Denver's Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. Our mission is to grow healthy community through food access, production and education.
The GrowHaus is based in an old 20,000 square-foot greenhouse that was purchased in late 2009. We're currently growing and teaching in a small part of that greenhouse as we renovate more of our space to accomodate increased food production, educational facilities, and a local market. We operate based on a "triple-bottom-line" model incorporating the following core values: environmental, social and economic sustainability. You can also support their development through Our Haus, the GrowHaus capital campaign. More information is here.Volunteers of America
We feed. We shelter. We support. We care. Supporting and empowering people in need is a shared goal for all of Volunteers of America's geographies and branches. With more than 30 critical human service programs throughout the state of Colorado, our ministry of service extends across the Front Range, into the Rocky Mountains, and on the Eastern Slope to help those who need us most. Volunteers of America's Colorado Branch uncovers the unmet needs within our communities and creates programs designed to reach those who need our help. These programs not only assist individuals and families, but provide them with the tools to become successful. Like them on facebook to keep up with their events and volunteer opportunities.
