Joyful Journeys Community Enrichment helps improve the lives of families by providing critical human services like food, clothes, hygiene products, baby items and school supplies. Simply providing emergency essentials though is a band-aid to a much larger problem. We proactively fight the battle by providing tutoring and after school support, exercise and nutrition classes, financial literacy courses, we host a community garden, clean the streets, help struggling families over the holidays, provide resume building assistance and household budgeting classes!

Hi! My name is Tasha VanMarter and I am a huge fan of the outdoors. I love to run, hike, snowboard, back country, exercise and I absolutely LOVE my family and pets. I have a Masters in Sociology and have dedicated my life to helping others improve theirs. I believe that it's not what you have in life that's important, but what you give to those around you...even if all you can give is a smile.

Hi! My name is Susan Martinez and I am from Ft. Collins, CO and reside in the Denver Metro area. I have a Business Degree and I’m a Human Resources Business Consultant for Staples Supply Chain Organization. My two boys keep me very busy, but in my spare time I love to run and spend time with friends and family. Most people focus their energy on what will make them successful in life, but what does that success mean to you? For me success is not just checking goals and achievements off my list it’s to make a positive impact on my life and other lives, “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”-Albert Einstein.
