Routt County United Way provides leadership support for the Human Resource Coalition, a network of health and human service professionals that work collectively to address community problems.
The coalition also assists Routt County and the City of Steamboat Springs in allocating public funds where most needed.
Routt County United Way led the way to develop the first Routt County Health and Human Services Plan, identifying human service needs, priorities and goals based on data about our county.
