Caring for Denver Foundation Aims to Include Input from Queer Community

On November 7 at the Center for Visual Art, Caring for Denver Foundation held its public launch event.

The well-attended event included leaders such as Colorado State Representative Leslie Herod and Carl Clark, M.D. from the Mental Health Center of Denver. Both of them, along with other community leaders, advocates, and persons with lived experience pushed to bring increased funding for mental health and substance misuse needs into reality.

“The energy residents showed through their vote in November of 2018 is invigorating as we lay the foundation for this game-changing work,” said Lorez Meinhold, executive director of the new Caring for Denver Foundation.

“No longer will we let our friends, family, youth, and neighbors suffer from mental health and substance misuse in silence. We’re eager to begin work to ensure our communities have the right resources and support they need to heal.”.
