Some nonprofits in our community
  • La Plata Youth Services
    Join us to support our youth! La Plata Youth Services provides support and advocacy for youth facing challenges in school, home, or court. Last year we reached over 600 youth in La Plata County through our prevention and early-intervention, court diversion, and community-based programs.
  • For Pets' Sake Humane Society
    We help people and their pets with spay/neuter costs, emergency vet bills, and pet food. We help unwanted dogs and cats get ready for adoption. We have a great outdoor, stray and abandoned cat project. Our volunteers have served the pets and people of Southwest Colorado for 34 years.
  • Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center
    Willowtail offers time and space for practitioners in the arts and ecology. Residents contemplate and develop their projects influenced by the preserve's essence. Deeper works are aided by unexpected directions of thought and process. Residents and the community are beneficiaries.
  • Onward! A Legacy Foundation
    Create and encourage methods for philanthropic giving to meet financial goals for a variety of donors. Identify, improve, and assist in addressing the needs of the Four Corners' communities. Foster understanding and cooperation among diverse cultural and ethnic groups.
