Information About Youth Being Gathered in Saguache

The Colorado Trust Foundation is gathering information about issues involving youth and youth activities. Saguache Resident Team member Stacey Holden reached out to Saguache Today to help get the word out about how local residents, from youths, to the folks who know youths, can share their opinion about the topic.

They have two questionnaires – one for youth and one for adults. Please print and fill out your survey. Afterwards you can either drop it off at the Town Hall or the library, or email it back to Stacey at staceyamosart@aol.com. Here’s the LINK.

Some Background
A new initiative by the Colorado Trust, a healthy equity foundation, means that San Luis Valley residents will have the opportunity to help shape and determine future programming and funding that improves their health and well-being.

Saguache Community Partner Arden Trewartha has been meeting with community members in the San Luis Valley to discuss opportunities, challenges, and issues that impact the health of their family, friends and neighbors for over a year. She has been partnering with communities to help them come up with their own plans and ideas about how to improve health and well-being for people who live here.

During the past year, the Colorado Trust Fund has hosted a number of community gatherings, like the Hogs & Hot Air Festival last June 21, where more than 60 locals listened to ranchers tell tales and afterward, were treated to a community meal which included local pork, potatoes, green chili and churros.

Then in November, the Colorado Trust brought folks together around the table again for the Annual Saguache Thanksgiving Community Meal.

Now, the program is gathering information about youth in Saguache and is looking for local residents to share their opinions. If you have any questions about this or want to become involved with any of the programs that the Colorado Trust is conducting, please contact Arden Trewartha at Arden@coloradotrust.org  or 719-239-1200.
