Why We Do What We Do
Boulder County is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation; yet tens of thousands of people live below the federal poverty level. The federal poverty level is a national average poverty benchmark and doesn’t take into account the actual cost of living in an expensive place like Boulder County. When fixed incomes don’t meet a need or emergency situations arise, greater Longmont residents need a hand-up to prevent homelessness, maintain work and performance in schools, and enhance family and individual potential.
The OUR Center understands these situations and has created a welcoming, supportive and inclusive place for greater Longmont residents to seek an array of services to regain or begin their road to self-sufficiency. In mutual collaboration with our program participants, we develop personalized plans to assist individuals and families move toward self-sufficiency. With services in hospitality care, personal development and family assistance so that those in need can find the support they need. Each participant meets with a Resource Navigator to explore their personal Self-Sufficiency Matrix and, through two-way follow-up, they regain or begin the road to self-sufficiency. We provide confidentiality, respect, compassionate care, and honesty with all individuals and families.
The OUR Center, a non-profit in Longmont, Colorado, assists individuals and families in need of food, resources and to develop vital life-long skills to enable self-sufficiency.
