ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos announced a partnership with the Rose Andom Center, which is scheduled to open in Denver in summer of 2015 and will provide services to victims of domestic violence through its wide-ranging support system of both public and private agencies.
As part of this relationship, the Broncos have pledged a $150,000 donation from Broncos Charities and committed to an ongoing collaboration with the Rose Andom Center, the first family justice center in Colorado.
"There is no place for domestic violence in our society," Broncos President and Chief Executive Officer Joe Ellis said. "It's a very serious issue that affects so many, including children, and it deserves the extensive resources that the Rose Andom Center will provide to make a difference.
"The Denver Broncos are very proud to announce this relationship and look forward to the positive impact the Rose Andom Center will have on our community."
The Rose Andom Center will create a new vision for providing services to domestic violence victims by facilitating better access to services and staff of community organizations and government agencies in a single, safe location. Its goal is to co-locate staff and crucial services in one place to reduce the number of places victims must go to access services, increasing the likelihood that victims will successfully utilize all available resources.
As a public/private partnership, the Rose Andom Center brings together 15 community organizations and seven government agencies to work together under one roof. It will also provide a streamlined referral process to numerous other off-site partners and programs to aid those affected by domestic violence.
The Broncos are one of many community organizations pledging support for the Rose Andom Center, named in honor of Denver entrepreneur and McDonald's franchise owner Rose Andom and her lead gift of $1 million toward the successful completion of this important civic project.
