Mission & Purpose

The purpose of the Blue Sky Bridge Associate Board is to further the Blue Sky Bridge mission by participating in community outreach, networking opportunities, and fundraising events. The Associate Board also has the opportunity to create and implement new ways of spreading awareness and raising funds for Blue Sky Bridge. The Associate Board will offer advice, creative input, and service to staff and the Board of Directors. This is a hands-on group with a commitment to philanthropy and volunteerism.

About Blue Sky Bridge

Blue Sky Bridge’s mission is to foster safe communities, healing, and justice to end child abuse.

Since 1995, we have served as Boulder County’s expert on child abuse. Our survivor-centered, trauma-informed approach has empowered thousands of child survivors and their family members to find the support that they need in order to begin the healing process after an allegation of abuse. At our facility, children receive forensic interviews, medical exams, and therapy services. Caretakers receive crisis intervention counseling and support services.

Out in the community, we provide education programs that reach students, parents, law enforcement officers, educators and more. We believe that education is our most powerful tool to prevent and disrupt the cycle of abuse. Together we can keep our children safe. They deserve to live in a community free of abuse.
