See How We’ve Helped Our Communities!

“Westminster was devastated by the abduction and murder of young Jessica Ridgeway in October 2012. In memory of a girl whose joyful spirit touched so many and in an attempt to promote community and family healing, the city agreed to rename and rebuild her neighborhood park. Our big dreams for Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park were made possible largely due to the leadership demonstrated by your $50,000 grant and the tremendous exposure we received at the 2013 Colorado Garden and Home Show. Your early participation and support added hope and credibility to our fundraising efforts. Together, with the Ridgeway family and those like you who have given so generously, we will graciously open Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park in the fall of 2013.”

“Grant money received from the Colorado Garden Foundation has allowed us to create beautiful garden spaces that are enjoyed by many. While the original intent was to create a beautiful garden and an outdoor treatment space for our patients, we have witnessed so much more. Staff gather for spontaneous meetings, family members seeking quiet and respite spend countess hours, individuals from nearby neighborhoods and businesses make it a regular part of their day to walk through or have lunch in the gardens. Night nurses have shared that they end their shift watching the sun rise in the garden before going home.

Whether patients, family members or staff, people leave the garden feeling a sense of calm and renewal. Better therapy outcomes are witnessed by therapists who work with their patients in the garden–they stand longer, engage more easily and can focus for longer periods of time. Patients and family members express that it is so important to be able to simply “get away” from all that goes on inside the hospital walls, that being in the garden makes it feel like they’re not in the hospital.

We are so fortunate to have been a recipient of CGHS grants.The newly created outdoor garden spaces have made Craig Hospital a better place for all. Thank you for believing in the mission and excellent work done at Craig Hospital.

 

With much gratitude,”

“Thanks to the Colorado Garden Foundation our therapy garden has become not only a impactful therapy space but also an oasis for patients and families.  It has become a renewing place that helps many (if only for a time) forget that they are in a hospital.”

“The grant funds Easter Seals Colorado received from the Colorado Garden Foundation will revitalize the open space surrounding our headquarters.  The xeriscape gardens will create outdoor programming areas for the people with disabilities we serve, provide much needed curb appeal to our property as well as educate the community about plants used in xeriscape landscaping. This grant helps turn a tired, old yard into a multi-purpose community asset.”
