Some nonprofits in our community
  • La Plata Family Centers Coalition
    For over 30 years, the family center has listened and responded to the social, emotional, educational and economic needs of diverse families in our community. These efforts continue to strengthen families and reduce feelings of hopelessness that families can experience during challenging times.
  • Southwest Center for Independence
    Give the gift of independence! One in five Americans becomes disabled or experiences a chronic condition that interferes with our ability to live the lives we want. Make a real impact on the lives of people with disabilities who want to be more independent and more included in their communities.
  • Be FRANK Foundation
    The Be FRANK Foundation exists to encourage area youth to live meaningful, purposeful lives by providing unique, affordable, and challenging music and outdoor education opportunities to stimulate minds and connect youth with their communities.
  • Durango Adult Education Center
    The Durango Adult Education Center provides affordable and effective education to young adults (17) and adults over 18. We equip individuals with the knowledge they need to lead productive lives, allowing them to better contribute to the local economy and the overall health of our communities.
