In an effort to slow the potential spread of COVID-19 in our community,
Saguache County government will have limited access to buildings
beginning Monday, April 27, 2020.
In an effort to move forward with our job duties, a decision was made
to begin integrating the public back into the county sector.
Staff will be providing limited essential services via phone and online avenues.
In-person contact for receiving essential services will have limited restrictions during this time.
These adjustments to county services and public access will be in place until further notice.
Our Mission is to create a healthy community for our youth by promoting healthy lifestlye choices and preventing substance abuse as well as other contrubuting factors of chronic disease and addiction.
The CTC is an initiative focused on impacting community level change in the prevention of underage drinking and tobacco use. The coalition works to change people's perceptions, attitudes and habits around substance abuse. The Saguache County Public Health oversees the project which employs one part-time position, a coordinator, and a quarter time position, evaluation liaison. In addition youth consultants are hired to represent out three school districts.
Formed in March of 2006, the CTC coalition is comprised of approximately 15 interested youth, business owners, service providers, educators, citizens, and government officials from Saguache County. Coalition members participate in and provide direction for each step of the prevention process from planning through implementation. Healthy Kids Colorado Surveys are administered each fall to provide data for identifying evidence based programming. Curriculum has been purchased and is being implemented in Mountain Valley, Moffat and Center school districts.
