Community Health Initiatives is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt, private nonprofit organization located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. We offer counseling and prevention programs that serve residents of the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys. Our mission is promoting healthy behavior by sponsoring workplace and community programs and providing outpatient counseling to youth and adults.
On a national level, we provide research and evaluation support that improves the health and well-being of individuals and communities. We offer a wide array of statistical analysis services focused on improving operational and policy efficiencies so that organizations may enhance their own programs. Our researchers utilize the latest technology and software and they maintain advanced knowledge of accepted evaluation practices. We are often called in to assist clients who seek day-to-day assistance with data management, training, or communications.
Our consultation and technical assistance can be described as “participatory,” so they involve closely the views of the organization, “outcomes-driven,” to that they produce results useful to the organization’s staff and consumers, and “investment-oriented,” in that research and evaluation are always beneficial to fiscal stakeholders in making their decisions about ongoing support.
We maintain a data management facility with which clients are able to first discover how their programs can collect relevant data for operations, staff activities, and for funders. These can later be transferred to the client’s organization for their application.

- Assessment and Counseling for adults and adolescents
- Media campaigns
- Coordination efforts of task forces for prevention activities
