Some nonprofits in our community
  • 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.
  • Habitat for Humanity Archuleta County, Inc.
    Through volunteer labor and donations of money & materials, we build affordable homes for working families. We chose families based on need and ability to pay a low interest mortgage. Partner families also invest 400-500 hours of sweat equity into building their home.
  • 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.
  • K-9 Search and Rescue Team, Inc.
    Volunteers of the K-9 Team specialize in the use of highly trained dogs to assist missing or injured persons in wilderness, water, avalanche or disaster.
