To support Colorado's community-based organizations and the people they serve with in-kind resources while creating a safe and stable work and training environment for individuals with mental illness within Providers' Resource Clearinghouse.
Providers’ Resource Clearinghouse (PRC) was opened in 1993 by a group of community leaders from the business, faith and nonprofit sectors who wanted to bridge the gap between struggling human-service providers and businesses seeking to serve the community through in-kind giving. Since that time, Providers’ Resource Clearinghouse (PRC), a 501(c)(3) organization, has refurbished and redistributed more than $100 million dollars worth of goods and supplies to thousands of community based agencies throughout the Denver metro area.
PRC accepts donations from corporations and individuals consisting of new and used office and household furnishings. PRC then finds new innovative possibilities for the use of these items by recycling or redistributing them to other nonprofits and those they serve for a small fee.
