Facilitating Collaborative Solutions to Shared Challenges of the
Roaring Fork & Colorado River Valleys
We believe we're all better when we work together.
From Parachute to Aspen, Colorado, the Hurst Community Initiative works with elected officials, non-elected
community leaders, nonprofits, educational institutions, immigrants, businesses, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, state agencies, community organizers, and industry innovators.
The Hurst Community Initiative 3-Part Mission:
With a focus on equity and belonging, we amplify and support projects that promote:
Economies are strongest when they're built on a wide variety of industries, where everyone has equal opportunity to participate and benefit equitably.
Quality healthcare includes equitable options that cover affordable primary and mental care, prescriptions, oral health, & vision — regardless of income.
Healthy, resilient communities prioritize affordability and year-round availability of safe, nutrient-rich food, with direct access to local farms.
Strong economies understand that equitable and affordable access to quality early-childhood care supports our youngest learners and their families.
Resilient communities stay on the cutting-edge of emerging industries and provide skills-based training to maintain a competitively paid workforce.
Thriving communities encourage market innovations that promotes equitably healthy ecosystems, regional biodiversity, and environmental sustainability.
We embrace our diversity and support opportunities for emerging leaders to equitably represent themselves and the communities they call home.
Rural communities that prioritize access to high-speed broadband Internet promote equitable access to local, regional and global opportunities.
Prioritizing rural economies with equitable, affordable and accessible transportation connects students, families and professionals in the region.
Fight for the things you care about,
but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.
