Of all the geographic, ethnographic, or economic groups we looked it, the two groups most consistently underserved and underrepresented at OMF and DOM were individuals with no post-secondary education and the Latino community.
The Latino community represents about 32% of Denver's population, approximately 38% of the population in our La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood, but only 7% to 10% of our member/student base identify as Latino/a. Individuals without any college education (including HS graduates and dropouts) represent over 40% of the Denver population and over 55% of the population of La Alma/Lincoln park. However, only 5% to 10% of our members and students have no college education. These two demographic groups are the primary focus for OMF's outreach in the coming years.
This year, OMF will give out 5 nonprofit organization memberships valued at $1000 each.
