Select Health® announced today a donation totaling $25,000 distributed among five nonprofit organizations across Colorado. This philanthropic effort aligns with Select Health’s focus on Social Determinants of Health (SDoH), addressing crucial issues such as food insecurity, housing instability, transportation limitations and access to essential healthcare.

Among the recipients of Select Health’s initiative is Mile High United Way, receiving a $5,000 donation. This contribution will support the organization’s 211 service, a confidential and multilingual resource connecting individuals to vital care services, including healthcare and insurance information.

Additionally, the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless will use the donation to further its mission of providing healthcare to underserved and migrant populations throughout the state.

In Grand Junction, Select Health is proud to support Hilltop, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing an array of essential services including domestic violence support, access to job assistance programs, residential care for adults with traumatic brain injuries, and helping individuals and families get access to health care.

Another $5,000 donation is directed toward the Food Bank of the Rockies, the largest hunger relief organization in the Rocky Mountain region. These funds supported its signature annual event, Gather & Sow, ensuring widespread distribution of food resources to communities facing critical needs.

The Seniors Resource Center headquartered in Wheat Ridge received a $5,000 donation from Select Health, to assist older adults in maintaining their independence at home through various support services, including minor home maintenance, deep cleaning, and yard upkeep during the summer months.

"These organizations are making a real, tangible impact in their communities," said Curt Howell, market president of the Peaks Region for Select Health. "Select Health aims to create a lasting and meaningful impact on the lives of Colorado residents, underscoring our dedication to fostering healthier and more resilient communities."

For 2024, Select Health launched a comprehensive range of health plans tailored for individuals, families, and Medicare beneficiaries. These plans will offer extensive coverage and accessibility, ensuring individuals and families have access to a wide range of top-tier healthcare services and facilities. Enrollees during this year's health insurance enrollment period will gain access to premier provider networks across Colorado, including Intermountain Health, UCHealth, AdventHealth and Monument Health.

This expansion and support of local organizations reflects our commitment to delivering high-quality healthcare solutions while prioritizing the unique needs of Coloradans.
