Giving Back Regarding the Denver Rescue MissionThe team at Wealth Strategies are immensely focused on ways to give back as part of our core values of "Elevating Community".When deciding who to serve, we weigh our decisions in part on an alignment of values and those values need to support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Like the rest of the public, we have recently learned of certain discriminatory policies in place with Denver Rescue Mission — policies targeted exclusively toward members of the LGBTQ community.While Denver Rescue Mission has openly stated that they will be removing this language from their policies and guidelines, we are concerned that such policies were originally considered, which highlights that the current DRM decision-makers values do not align with our own.We wholeheartedly align with the needed support that similar missions and shelters provide to hundreds of thousands of individuals daily, but we refuse to support discrimination.We stand strongly in our internal assessment that passing judgement upon individuals based on sexual orientation or identity is neither just, nor inclusive. So, we are internally reassessing any further support of Denver Rescue Mission.Homelessness and addiction affect thousands in Colorado who still need support.The Wealth Strategies team will continue to seek new ways to support and elevate those in our community who are in need.If you have questions about the ways that Wealth Strategies gives back to the community, please contact us at 303-770-9020 or at WealthContact@wealthsg.comIf you would like to learn more:https://www.denverpost.com/2022/11/23/denver-rescue-mission-anti-lgbtq-handbook/https://denverite.com/2022/11/21/denver-rescue-mission-anti-lgbtq-language-handbook/https://www.9news.com/article/news/local/lgbtq/denver-rescue-mission-changes-plan-to-ban-lgbtq-employees/73-e7fcf7dc-b1c0-4dfb-890f-df1da8a55f5c Adopt-A-Family 2021Last year's Wealth Strategies Adopt-A-Family drive was amazing, so this year we have kicked it up a notch.
