Who We Are2018-05-08T20:05:04+00:00

Our Mission

We provide support to at-risk, abused and neglected youth in Boulder County through educational scholarships, transitional housing and more. We also serve as a cause marketing service association enabling businesses to join together and provide effective service to vulnerable children and teens.

Businesses are invited to join RFCBC where they benefit from expanded media exposure, networking events, opportunities to gain new sales leads, and more. Our members understand the value of serving their community and reap the benefits of being recognized for their ethic. Thanks to our business member support, 100% of all donor and fundraising dollars are applied directly to assist Boulder County youth. We are a 501(c)3 organization and our Tax ID is 46-5330950.

Our Team

In 2002 Eric founded his first non-profit program, Sage Community Partnership, and opened the doors of SCP’s Polaris House Transitional Living Program for teens aging out of the foster care system.

After endless hours of caffeine, envisioning best practices of service and a large dose of ‘what am I waiting for’ forehead slapping, Eric opened the doors of Realities for Children Boulder County in May of 2012.
