“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
― Maya Angelou
November is tHE month
to give thanks and appreciation to your non-profit of choice. You have a FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY to choose where your tax deductible donation will go. “Colorado Gives Day” is a state-wide program that is giving you that opportunity by providing website access to more than 2000 non-profits that could use your help. Colorado Gives will then distribute their $1,000,000 incentive fund to non-profits based on the amount generated for each cause. We at FRIENDLY HARBOR would be incredibly grateful should you select our organization as your non-profit of choice. For 22 years, the Friendly Harbor has provided a refuge for those with mental health conditions. The Friendly Harbor is the only organization in Pueblo that is independent of treatment providers, membership-based, peer-run and staffed by Peer Specialists. Use of Peer Specialists is an evidence-based, Medicaid-approved ancillary service that has been shown to decrease risk of suicide, police contacts, depression and psychotic symptoms, and use of emergency rooms and increase quality of life, employment, return to school, self-esteem, and sense of belonging. You can select FRIENDLY HARBOR’S icon and then make your choices. You can make a one-time Colorado Gives Day donation or choose the recurring button. Both are VERY appreciated, but the recurring button is especially appreciated because a stable income helps us plan for the best use of our funds. We promise your donation will promote mental wellness and improve the lives of those with mental health and substance conditions in Pueblo County. We will be excellent stewards of your donation.

We Need Your Help!
In order to meet our goals, we need a stable financial foundation, including a reserve to cover unexpected costs. We need a marketing plan to counter the perception that we are just a “drop-in center” for the down-and-out.
- We need to expand our hours
- Hire more peer specialists
- Hire a chief executive officer
- Purchase a large van
- Strengthen our connections in the community
*Note: Your donation may be tax deductible as we are a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization.
