Our Mission

The Colorado Lab’s mission is improving the lives of Colorado residents by partnering with state and local governments to strengthen coordinated and efficient person-centered services.

Strategic Partnerships

We believe that smart, strategic partnerships with government have the potential to improve people’s lives.

State and Local Government

So we listen to our state and local government partners to understand the most pressing challenges they face.

Research Community

Then, we activate the research community to work with those partners to generate insights.

360° View

Together, we take a 360-degree view of problems, focusing on the needs of the whole person.

Drive Change

When we do this, we create powerful partnerships that drive change, improving the lives of Colorado residents.
