Smokey’s 420 House is proud to be a sponsor at the 420 For Good fundraiser event June 11th, 2017! The Smokey’s family is all about elevating the community through our quality products and services. We would love for you to come out and join us on the 11th for a night of live music from local artists, glassblowing demonstrations, and prize raffling! The proceeds from this event will go to help Project Self-Sufficiency which has helped over 1,000 families in our local community for the past 30 years. If you are not familiar with Project Self-Sufficiency they aim to help single parents in the Larimer County area achieve stability in multiple areas of their life. This can include securing health insurance, housing, transportation, child care, legal issues, physical and behavioral health challenges, and family safety. The program assists parents in planning steps that will help them in their career and family life. 64% of the participants are earning their STEM Degrees and the goal is to move these single-parents from making $14,500 a year to $56,887 by giving them access to education and career planning. They proudly have helped 96% of these families stabilize or increase their educational outcomes, so we here at Smokey’s 420 house are very excited to be able to help this amazing program. Here is a brief highlight of the many accomplishments Project Self-Sufficiency have been awarded:
-2016 - United Way of Larimer County Volunteer Hero Award - Financial Stability
