The mission of STEM Center for Strength is to promote recovery and resilience for the STEM School Highlands Ranch community through social connection and wellness programming.
The video below gives you an idea on what we're about!
After the incident of mass violence on May 7, 2019, the STEM School Highlands Ranch found its community changed forever. In the aftermath, students, parents, staff and our community have worked tirelessly to recover from the impact of those events while continuing to maintain a familial and educational environment for the STEM School Highlands Ranch.
In the weeks following that spring day, the school identified Colorado non-profit, community mental health provider AllHealth Network to provide guidance for the mental health needs of the STEM School Highlands Ranch. AllHealth Network, with assistance from the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance and the Office of Victims of Crime, secured a federal grant from the Antiterrorism and Emergency Assistance Program to fund a physical space to provide resiliency services, counseling, education and resources for the STEM School Highlands Ranch community. This space was named by students as the STEM Center for Strength.
