Family Environmental has become a donor to support to the Latino Eco Festival, bringing awareness to climate change and seeking to change the lack of minorities in environmental organizations.
“Family Environmental opened its office in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood in 1998, before the area was even known as RiNo. The area has had its fair share of struggles and issues, but we are now on the precipice of major change. Entire swaths of land and infrastructure are being re-developed and investor money is flowing into the neighborhood. Unfortunately, all are not beneficiaries of this change, plenty of folks are still on the outside looking in. In my years as a local business owner, I have learned that taking care of our community is a collective responsibility. While government support functions are a critical component, it takes active engagement from the private sector and other non-governmental stakeholders to help lift and support those who need help. The idea of helping others is a passionate endeavor for me. My parents taught me that ‘All Are Welcome’, and I am continuing that legacy through our work and resources at Family.
Family Environmental takes corporate social responsibility seriously, and we commit to making a positive difference in our neighborhood and beyond. ”
