Some nonprofits in our community
  • Children's Garden Early Learning Center
    At the Children's Garden we believe early child learning is an investment in our children and our future! We serve children from all over the San Luis Valley and from all economic backgrounds. About 90% of our students come from low income families and with your help they are able to thrive and excel not only in school but in their lives. Donations of $100 or more may be eligible for the State of Colorado Education Tax Credit (50%).
  • La Puente Home, Inc.
    The San Luis Valley has some of the highest poverty in the state. We are the only nonprofit providing a network of services to address the neediest among us, including children, families, homeless. We provide shelter, housing, food, meals, prevention (rent, electrical, heating etc.) assistance.
  • Rio Grande Watershed Conservation & Education Initiative
    Colorado's most precious natural resources, water and soil, need understanding and conserving more than ever. As we strive across the state to create educated community members, the San Luis Valley also wants to engage our children (and future voting community members) with our natural resources.
  • Blue Peaks Developmental Services, Inc.
    Blue Peaks is committed to meeting the challenges of transportation, access to health care providers, and hiring qualified staff and management with the limited state funds. Blue Peaks works to ensure that people with developmental disabilities participate in making the choices that impact them.
