About SPAN

SPAN is a human rights organization committed to ending violence against adults, youth and children through support, advocacy, education and community organizing. SPAN began providing services in 1979 and is crucial to the network of support that offers critical “safety net” services to vulnerable, low-income and at-risk populations. It is the only organization serving Boulder, western Broomfield, smaller towns and unincorporated Boulder County designed to provide shelter and advocacy for victims of interpersonal violence at a time when our community is experiencing higher domestic violence rates than national and state averages.

SPAN’s organizational goals are:
– Foster organizational excellence
– Provide meaningful and effective support and resources to adults, children and youth impacted by interpersonal violence
– Implement violence prevention initiatives that promote safety, dignity and liberation for all people
– Engage individuals, groups, policy makers and the community at large in efforts that promote economic, racial and social justice.
