Only One Inc. was established by David Young in 1989 with the motivation and dedication towards creating social change.
This non-profit implemented a program that addresses health prevention because of the high rates of diabetes, cancer,
STDs and issues around health and food habits among the Chicana/o, indigenous and Mexican communities. Only One Inc.
works with the community to teach about sex education, alcohol, curanderismo and cultural awareness.
In order to enhance their health, first individuals have to value themselves and have a sense of self.
That is why teaching youth about culture is very important. In 1991,
recognizing the significant need for HIV prevention in the Latino community,
Only One worked closely with leaders from the Chicano/Latino communities to establish
HIV prevention/service programs in Denver. In 1998, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment contracted with Only
One Inc. to assess the HIV prevention needs of the Native American Urban community in the Denver/Boulder Metro Area.
Based on the findings of that assessment the Wapia Project, a prevention project targeting Native American Youth was initiated.
Only One continues to provide year-round projects and activities for the Chicano, Mexicano,
and Native American communities with a commitment to improving the well-being of its consistency.
