Our inaugural Judi’s House Speakers Series Luncheon—Strength in the Face of Adversity—held on May 5, 2015, far exceed all of our expectations. The event featured NFL legends, Archie Manning and Bob Griese, and was hosted by Brian Griese – former NFL quarterback, ESPN analyst, and Judi’s House co-founder.

In addition to increasing awareness of childhood bereavement, we raised more than $1 million. The funds raised at the inaugural luncheon will significantly expand our capacity to promote healthy adjustment for grieving children and families in our community and beyond. 


Denver NBC affiliate 9News featured the luncheon on their show Broncos Country.

Governor Hickenlooper and Mayor Hancock recognize Judi's House for the work we are doing in the Denver community and beyond.

Judi’s House started as an idea more than ten years ago. Now that seed has grown into an example of an organization that can have a national impact — and not just help a thousand individuals a year in Colorado, but many, many more in communities beyond Colorado
— John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado
Judi’s House is a wonderful example of the value of providing preventative services to youth in need in our community. These programs have a profound impact on the futures of hundreds of children every year. They are preventing countless negative outcomes in kids by building healthy coping skills that will help them the rest of their lives.
— Michael B. Hancock, Mayor of Denver
