Joint Initiative For Youth + Families

Joint Initiatives for Youth + Families (JI) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, serving the Pikes Peak region. JI’s work centers on empowering individuals to advance a safe, healthy, and flourishing community by preventing, reducing, intervening, and solving the social problems when families have limited (or fragmented) access to thrive.  JI leads the charge to bring over 60 different community organizations, local leaders, and government agencies to the table, working collaboratively to solve data-driven community issues embraced with an equity lens and collective impact focus. 

  • JI’s three primary programs offer a range of services for youth (0-21) and their families, extending from a preventive focus to more intensive intervention services.  

  • JI is the umbrella organization for three statutorily required state councils: the Early Childhood Council (Alliance for Kids), the Interagency Oversight Group (IOG), and the Juvenile Services and Planning Committee (JSPC). The IOG and JSPC have joined to become the REACH Committee.

  • JI fosters hope for a better future – for the children, youth, and families we serve and the community as a whole.

Our collaborative approach works. We make a collective impact.
