A report on outcomes of the Aspen to Parachute Cradle to Career Initiative (CCI).

“We applaud [ACF’s] leadership and commitment to education. Ensuring success by collaborating with the private and public sectors to leverage support in order to obtain all four of your prestigious goals, each aimed at helping all youth succeed, is brilliant. The positive impact of your work to reduce education inequality due to wealth disparity in western Colorado is something to be very proud of. You are making an incomparable difference in children’s lives, one of the best legacies one can accomplish.”
