JOINT INITIATIVES FOR YOUTH AND FAMILIES

JI began in 1989 with a meeting of three CEOs concerned about the number of children and youth that were being placed in out-of-county and out-of-state residential placements. Through this  initial collaboration, out-of-county placements were reduced by 40%.

Joint Initiatives became a Colorado nonprofit corporation in 1995 and obtained tax exempt status in 1996.
