The mission of Metro Denver Partners is to promote a safe and growth-oriented environment in which at-risk youth can develop and flourish. We work to accomplish this goal by providing services such as mentoring, gang intervention/prevention, and family support. Our programs encourage these youth to have higher self-esteem, perform better in school, and make positive life choices. Our Gang Rescue and Support Project (GRASP) provides support groups and additional services to Denver’s young adults who are gang involved and at risk of becoming involved. Group sessions cover topics such as healthy relationships, cultural significance, and coping with anger and grief. We also provide removal of visible gang tattoos in exchange for community service to help these individuals better integrate into society. To date, Metro Denver Partners has served over 16,000 youth.

From its inception, Feed The Rocks has always had the same idea: a grassroots by-the-people, for-the-people event, shaped in helping the community grow in Denver, Colorado. Naming the event “Feed The Rocks” wasn’t just picked arbitrarily. It was purposely picked to “Feed” the rocks. More specifically, “Feed” means to support. It was created for everyone to benefit. For the fans to have an incredible experience and wish to return to future events; for the Amphitheatre to see more travellers and new faces; for the artists to play at beautiful Red Rocks and if we’re given that opportunity to give back to the community, then everyone wins.
But while we all love Red Rocks so much, do we all know the ways in which to help keep it well preserved?
With most shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre selling out, or coming close to, that’s roughly 9,000 fans per show, several times a week, all summer long (with new events beginning to happen almost year round). Preserve the Rocks, a fund of the City and County of Denver, dedicated to education, restoration, and preservation in and around Red Rocks, has devoted their time and energy to keep Red Rocks beautiful. With the help of Preserve the Rocks, the backstage dressing rooms are well kept, the catering service areas are maintained, the parking lots that every fan loves to tailgate in are kept in superb condition, and the exhibit space in the visitor center has been expanded. People Helping People couldn’t be more excited to donate to Preserve the Rocks, and continue to make Red Rocks one of the most exhilarating, exciting and rewarding places to ever visit.
