Mutual Aid Partners is a network that supports and connects grassroots organizations on the Western Slope by facilitating communication, education, boosting collaboration, sharing resources & volunteers, and partnering on fundraising efforts. Driven by the spirit of solidarity, we will listen and work alongside our community to build a sustainable and long-term support system for all.
Who we are:
MAP is a grassroots based non-profit organization focused on providing resources and structure to mutual aid projects in Grand Junction and Western Colorado.
MAP was established as a direct result to the COVID-19 pandemic and through our project partnership with Grand Junction Mutual Aid, we have coordinated volunteers and the distribution of essential resources, including food, clothing, hygiene products & accessibility to medical care, housing & education.
Since November of 2020, MAP has had a dedicated team focused on COVID-19 relief work, specific to quarantined neighbors from the unsheltered community. We have successfully facilitated bringing local agencies together in a collective response that capitalizes on each agency’s strengths. MAP is currently collaborating with Mesa County Public Health, CDPHE, Homeward Bound, Karis/The House and Catholic Outreach in a variety of efforts, including the delivery of over 7,000 meals, connecting healthcare volunteers to those with barriers to care & advocating for accessibility to testing, education and vaccines– year to date we’ve helped about 100 people get vaccinated in GJ!
