Our Mission

Cultivating partnerships to foster thriving Edgewater schools

Our Vision

Thriving neighborhood schools connected to a thriving community

Thriving Schools

In each community, there are challenges and opportunities that cannot be overcome or leveraged by one business, nonprofit or government agency. When we come together around a common goal with defined indicators of success, challenges can be overcome and opportunities can be leveraged.

Currently, the biggest challenge in the Edgewater area resides in our schools. 9 in 10 students in our neighborhood schools are struggling against the roadblocks of poverty. Without placing the blame, we are building partnerships to make sure that every child in our zip code has a chance to succeed from cradle to career.

Current Projects

Thriving Schools

  • Jefferson Success Pathway: Edgewater Collective is the backbone organization working behind the scenes to bring organizations and community partners together around the goal that all kids in the 80214 zip code succeed from cradle to career.

Thriving Families

  • With the Jefferson Community Center, we are working with community partners to provide a place where parents can access resources to invest in their own career and holistic success.

Value of Inclusion and Diversity

We are a common good organization which strives to be inclusive of all and value the beauty of diversity.

We welcome all who want to see a thriving Edgewater. It is our hope to offer equal opportunity to all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, gender identifications, documentation status, abilities, incomes, marital statuses and ages in all levels of staff and governance.
