WFCO in Northern Colorado

In Larimer County, a family with one adult and one preschooler needs to earn  $49,618 a year or about $23.85 an hour, in order to be economically self-sufficient, but for many those wages are out of reach. More than 28 percent of working age households - over 27,000 households - in Larimer County have income inadequate to meet their basic needs . That number jumps to 31 percent of households in Weld County. WFCO is working to change that through the power of our community, philanthropy, and impact.

In addition to our education events and volunteer activity, The Women’s Foundation of Colorado has had a long history of grantmaking in Northern Colorado with organizations such as Project Self-Sufficiency. Project Self-Sufficiency serves approximately 160 low-income families a year. It provides support to families with children under the age of 13 and homes with single parents to secure healthcare, housing, food, and transportation for the family and then works with them on long-term educational and career goals.
