Local safety-net programs benefit from annual grant funds

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners has selected 31 nonprofit programs to share $100,000 in grant funds from the County’s 2022 portion of the Philip S. Miller Trust.

Together, these vital programs cast a wide safety net throughout the County by delivering programs and services such as suicide prevention, therapy, medical assistance, mental health, emergency financial assistance and support for seniors and school-age children.

Recipients of these awards enhance the quality of life for vulnerable and at-risk members of our community, and many provide services not available through other means.

Miller grant recipients for 2022 include many continuing grantees such as Help and Hope Center, Doctors Care, SECORCares, Catholic Charities of Central Colorado, Bridge of Hope and Cherry Hills Community Church as well as five first-time awardees HorsePower, Inc., Douglas County Christian Counseling, Purple Lotus WARRIOR Yoga, CSU Foundation, and Manna Resource Center.

This year, the Douglas County Community Foundation administered the County’s grant program. The County Commissioners will continue their accountability for the funds via evaluation of funding recommendations and the final decision for distribution.

These awards continue the legacy of philanthropy established by Philip S. Miller and his wife Jessie, who dedicated so much of their lives to helping others in Douglas County and continue to do so through this generous and thoughtful gift.
