Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

Northern Colorado Self-Sufficiency Standard Release Event

What does it really take to make it in Larimer & Weld counties?

The income needed to meet the costs of basic needs has increased in all Colorado counties since 2001, and Larimer and Weld counties are at the top of the list. Women, particularly single mothers, experience higher levels of income inadequacy and are more likely to struggle. For example, a single mother with a pre-schooler and a school-age child making $15 per hour must work 69 hours per week in Weld County or 75 hours per week in Larimer County just to make ends meet for her family.

Tuesday, March 19

Join The Women’s Foundation of Colorado and the Colorado Center on Law and Policy in partnership with The United Way of Larimer County and The United Way of Weld County for an interactive educational event on the new Self-Sufficiency Standard of 2018. We'll explore the real costs of living in Larimer and Weld counties in 2018 and discuss what steps we need to take as a community to help women and their families make ends meet.

The program will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. Light food and beverages will be provided.

The Women's Foundation of Colorado is committed to inclusion and accessibility for all people. For questions about the event or accessibility, please contact Kristina Vaio, development officer and events manager, at kristinav@wfco.org 303-285-2967.
