ABOUT ALAMOSA CARES
Alamosa Cares is the website for the Alamosa Prevention Coalition, our local Communities That Care group. Founded July 1, 2016, we serve the residents of Alamosa County by working to prevent substance abuse, delinquency, teen pregnancy, depression, and anxiety by finding ways to decrease risk factors and enhance protective factors.
The Alamosa Prevention Coalition uses data assessment and strategy assessment to find the gaps in our social fabric. An action plan will be developed to address these gaps. So far we have hosted community forums and family-focused events such as Skate Night and Family Fun Night.
We are funded by marijuana tax dollars, the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health, and grants from community partners such as Walmart.
Next steps: The Alamosa Prevention Coalition will work on a detailed community action plan and a strategy for future financial sustainability.
