Force for Good 2021 Honorees
Representative Mike Weissman
Representative Mike Weissman is State Representative for House District 36 in Arapahoe County. The grandson of a doctor, a social worker, a journalist, and a community activist, he has long believed that the purpose of public policy and law is to improve our shared condition, particularly for those who have been less fortunate. In his three terms serving Colorado he has passed over a dozen criminal justice reform bills with an emphasis on sealing of records and expanded renters’ rights by improving Colorado’s warranty of habitability law; and helped modernize the Colorado Open Records Act to increase access to government information. Representative Weisman seeks to pay forward and work to keep alive the promise of opportunities that our country has long offered to those seeking a new beginning.

Restoration Christian Fellowship
Restoration Christian Fellowship is a community of believers who are dedicated to sharing the love of God through community outreach. Their vision sees them breaking down racial, cultural, and denominational walls of religion to create a place where everyone is welcomed. Their work in 2020 has ranged from supporting unhoused neighbors through the Safe Parking initiative and long-term efforts toward developing affordable housing on their property. Restoration Christian Fellowship has deep and faithful care of their neighbors that is shown through the many COVID diaper drives, food distribution, meal services, and community grief workshops.
Colorado Village Collaborative
Colorado Village Collaborative exists to create and operate transformational housing communities in partnership with people coming from homelessness. In 2020 Colorado Village Collaborative’s commitment to supporting unhoused neighbors was unwavering with the creation and service of the Safe Outdoor Space in the Capital Hill neighborhood that has resulted in additional locations in Park Hill and Regis University. In addition to the Safe Outdoor Spaces, Colorado Village Collaborative opened The Women’s Village at Clara Brown Commons, an innovative housing community that features fourteen relocatable tiny homes to support this historically marginalized community.
