The Colorado Restaurant Foundation’s Angel Relief Fund offers assistance for mental-health treatment to Colorado restaurant and hospitality employees, with grants of up to $1,000, paid directly to your mental health-care provider.

The CRF has partnerships with Khesed Wellness, for in-person and online appointments, and Teladoc, for 24/7 online appointments. If you prefer to work with another mental health-care provider, grant funds can still be used if the provider meets specific criteria. Once approved, your provider can apply for reimbursement of care (up to $1,000). Invoices may be redacted to exclude diagnosis information to protect your privacy.

Applicants are eligible to receive only one grant per person.

The CRF will keep all information confidential and will not receive any confidential health information from the provider.

Note: We have seen an increase in applications this year, and while we are so grateful to have helped so many people, our fund is currently depleted, so we are temporarily pausing the approval of new grants until funds are replenished.

We are keeping current applications on file and we will resume funding approved applications as soon as we can. In the meantime, please see this list of other resources for financial hardship grants.

  • Virtual out-patient treatment
  • In-person out-patient treatment
