Caring for Denver

QUESTION OF THE DAY

How can Denver better address the community’s mental health and substance misuse needs?

THE GOOD STUFF

Founded and funded by Denver, The Caring for Denver Foundation was established when seventy percent of the city said yes to a simple yet powerful ballot initiative. For every $100 spent in Denver, 25 cents totaling over $30 million dollars annually goes toward organizations to help transform mental health and substance misuse care.

We moved the organization from ballot to brand with the Creative Platform “United by Stories.” Inspired by Denver’s art community, we developed the distinctly homegrown and fearlessly real identity then brought it to life through their website, annual reports, strategic documents, social channels, and more.
