ARVADA, CO (April 20, 2016) – Community First Foundation’s Executive Vice President, Cheryl Haggstrom, has been elected to the Jefferson County Child and Youth Leadership Commission board of trustees. The Jefferson County Child and Youth Leadership Commission (CYLC) was formed in 2006 to establish a collaborative leadership body with the aim of increasing child and family health and well-being in Jefferson County.
“The Foundation has strong roots with Jefferson County and I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve our community and our families through CYLC,” said Haggstrom. “The Commission is taking an innovative approach to improving social determinants of health.”
Community First Foundation granted $82,580 in March 2016 to support CYLC’s collaborative planning phase. During this phase, the Commission will identify community experts, hold a symposium, host collaborative discussions and community forums and survey community members on resources, gaps and barriers to health and well-being. Community First Foundation will be a close partner to CYLC moving forward, strengthened by Haggstrom’s election to the board.
