Our JSI/Colorado office shares JSI's philosophy, mission, and values: in all of our work, we are driven by a commitment to improving the health of individuals and communities, with a particular focus on underserved and vulnerable populations.

JSI’s second U.S.-based office was opened in 1982 in Denver to operate a regional family planning project. Since then, the Denver office has grown to encompass a large variety of projects that span from furthering local community efforts to carrying out projects serving a national audience. The Denver team is a passionate group of individuals made up of public health, health operations, and health policy experts.
WHAT WE DO
In partnership with the state health department and key foundations, JSI Colorado worked on the sustainability of school-based health centers to provide access to care for adolescents. We are also home to federally funded projects that focus on enhancing access and quality of adolescent health care.
