Office to help communities in Colorado, nearby states address pressing challenges

Posted

The Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency for service and volunteering, has opened a Mountain Region office in downtown Denver.

As the nation’s top provider of grants to support service and volunteering, the Corporation for National and Community Service harnesses the energy and talents of its citizens to help communities address pressing challenges. These service efforts include tutoring and mentoring children, responding to the opioid crisis or helping communities recover from disasters.

The Mountain Region office is one of eight new regional offices that will further these efforts by connecting communities with resources through the AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs. Its staff will assist national service applicants and grantees by providing training, technical assistance and administrative oversight. In addition, they will promote the national days of service on MLK Day and Sept. 11.

The new office will serve seven states across the region: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. It is part of a first phase of regional office openings that also includes the Northeast Region office in Concord, N.H., and the North Central Region office in Kansas City, Missouri. Five more offices — in Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Los Angeles; and Philadelphia — will open during the next year.

“I’m excited to be here as we open this new regional office,” Barbara Stewart, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, said in a news release. “We have been fortunate to assemble an incredibly talented group of people to serve the Mountain Region. I can’t wait to see the work they do to help our country meet its most-pressing needs.”
