Additional Resources

Below is a list of local, statewide and national resources for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as their friends and loved ones.

The Community Market

The Community Market is a partnership of Eagle Valley Community Foundation, Food Bank of the Rockies, Eagle County government, Vail Resorts, a number of community non profit groups and other entities that provide local food assistance.

A warehouse at 760 Lindbergh Drive in Gypsum is the central operations hub for the program. But the program also brings food directly to communities across the Eagle River Valley in the form of pop-up markets. Our markets feature a variety of fresh produce, dairy and bread as well as shelf-stable grocery items. We believe that having access to good quality, nutritious food is a right, not a privilege.

EVCF established The Community Market, formerly the Eagle River Valley Food Bank, in May of 2018 as a scalable food security system that has the capacity to respond to immediate and long-term food insecurity needs.

The Salvation Army Vail

Please visit Salvation Army Vail’s Food Pantry Monday thru Friday.

OUR NEW HOURS FOR FOOD ASSISTANCE:

Human Rights Campaign

This epidemic of sexual violence in the LGBTQ community is something we must all work together to address. If someone discloses to you that they have been sexually assaulted, remember to believe them, reassure them that it wasn’t their fault, keep their disclosure confidential (unless the situation requires mandatory reporting), and never pressure them for more information than they want to share.

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, there are some LGBTQ-friendly resources listed by following this link.
