  • 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.
  • Riverhouse Children's Center Inc.
    Early Childhood Education is one of the best investments we can make! Benefits of early childhood education reaches far beyond the preschool years. It has been shown that a high quality early childhood education significantly improves a person's success as an adult. On average a person who attended a quality early childhood preschool will earn approximately $2000/month than those who did not. Young people who attended preschool are more likely to graduate high school, own homes, and refrain from getting in trouble with the law. Monetary donations to Riverhouse Children's Center also qualifies the donor to receive a Child Care Contribution Credit which may qualify for up to a 50% tax credit! Investing in Early Childhood Care and Education, just makes great sense!
