About Jeffco Prosperity Partners

Jeffco Prosperity Partners (JPP) is a community, supporting families moving from poverty to prosperity through a multi-generation approach – students to diploma and parents to self-defined prosperity.

JPP was created by the community, for the community, and cannot do this work alone. JPP has grown to include over 60 community partners including government, schools, early childhood, faith groups, nonprofits, foundations, community mental health, fatherhood, businesses, community members, volunteers, and many more. No individual organization can provide all the answers to the complex situations families encounter on their path to prosperity. Together, we work to help families break the cycle of generational poverty, aiding in their journey to self-defined prosperity.

Each family is connected to JPP until their youngest child graduates from high school, ensuring academic accomplishment and sustained family self-sufficiency. JPP works with the whole family, using the multigeneration approach, working with both children and their families or caretakers. Families identify both family and individual goals. JPP coaches work with families who have opted in typically through the Head Start program, because they want something new in their life and are committed to their child graduating and achieving their dreams. Wrap around services focus on economic stability, education, employment, health and wellness, and social capital. Families play a vital role in program development and define their own success, dreams, and goals.

"This program is a gift for a lifetime. My kids will have more opportunities for a better future than I had." - JPP Parent

Danielle has A LOT to celebrate this year:
Hi my name is Danielle. This year has been a good year. I have been working hard on improving myself, advancing my goals and moving my family forward. It was a challenge, but I was able to work hard and pay off half of my student loans. I have also started researching career options with the help of Steffanne and JPP and I am determined to work on furthering my career options. I am also buying my 1st home with my partner and our son in the next couple days. I will finally have something to call my home. Thank you JPP for letting me see the potential I really did have and giving me the motivation to act on it!!! Congratulations Danielle on making such big moves this year!

Rhiannon’s educational feats continue!
Rhiannon got accepted to the Colorado School of Mines and was awarded the Transfer Scholarship. She faces the challenge of paying for school and works towards overcoming that challenge by seeking out scholarship opportunities and leaning on the support of her community (including JPP and other advocates). She has also leaned on family. Rhiannon is adjusting to the new realities of online learning by setting up consistent routines and structure at home for herself and Charlie, utilizing school workbooks and exercising daily. Congratulations Rhiannon for finding strategies to be resilient through change!!
