Mission Statement

Benefits in Action is dedicated to supporting our connecting our diverse community with the support and resources they need to thrive.

Description

Benefits in Action is a nonprofit organization located in Lakewood, Colorado that serves individuals throughout the state. We strive to increase understanding, access, and utilization of healthcare resources. Our team of navigators (staff and volunteers) works with individuals to help them recognize the health-related benefits they qualify for, apply to those benefits, and utilize them as effectively as possible. We are passionate about the importance of increasing healthcare benefit literacy among the public. Accordingly, we organize and hold educational sessions in public facilities aimed at increasing individual understanding and self-efficacy in navigating the healthcare system. In addition to benefit navigation, we also provide tax preparation, mental wellness support, and food delivery (in the Denver-metro area).
