As the only community-based victim service agency in Eagle County, Colorado, Bright Future Foundation has been making futures bright for families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault for 37 years. Bright Future Foundation strives to break the generational cycle of violence and create a pathway to safety and security through the provision of compassionate and confidential programs. Services include a 24/7 crisis hotline, emergency shelter, housing stabilization services, trauma-informed counseling, legal services, mentoring and youth violence prevention.

Finding safe housing for families fleeing from domestic violence has always been the most critical mission of the Bright Future Foundation, and we have housed thousands of families. The BrightHouse will provide greater capacity for families, featuring six efficiency apartments for families fleeing domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking. The facility is intended to serve as temporary emergency housing while Bright Future Foundation staff advocates work with survivors to secure permanent housing and assist families on their path to self-sufficiency. It will be pet friendly and include common areas intended to engender community interaction, a children’s playground, garden, counseling and staff offices. The BrightHouse will be the realization of a dream for the foundation since its inception in 1984. 

Thanks to the generous support of the Gallegos Corporation, Bright Future Foundation is constructing an outdoor reflection area at the BrightHouse. We aim to build a legacy area to honor survivors and highlight the community commitment to making futures bright for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and trafficking. Community members can mark their commitment to the most vulnerable members of our community or honor a survivor in their lives by purchasing a paver for $250, only 200 pavers are available. We encourage you to include your name with others who support making futures bright for each and every one of us.

We are excited to further engage community support as we honor the survivors in each of our lives, community and world. Thank you for your belief in the mission of Bright Future Foundation and the vision for the BrightHouse.
