During this trying time in our lives, it is a blessing for us to be able to help the families and the youth of Huerfano County. COVID-19 has hindered our in-person services, as we have abided by all the rules and regualtions of the Huerfano/Las Animas County Health Department. Many of our consistent funders have decided to suspend funding until the 2021-22 grant cycle. The overall framework of the proposed programming at the Center is to continue to provide learning opportunities at SCCY through community-based activities. The activities to be used to promote success are college tours, job shadowing, and field trips. Such activities will happen as soon as in-person activities are allowed to happen.
We now provide Positive Youth Development activities remotely. Many of the youth who attend programming ahve never been out of Huerfano County, so such adventures provide them with the opportunity to view the world through different eyes, and to broaden thier horizons. In order to continue to provide such opportunities for the youth, general funding is necessary. Such funding will allow SCCY to continue to provide opportunities that enhave the lives of the youth and to help them realize thier authentic selves. Our hope is that you will see the value of SCCY. We need to keep the Center open and general funding will help pay the necessary daily expensews we incur on a monthly basis so that the youth of the county can continue to receive services and programming. Although programmins is being provided differently in our world today, we continue to strive to meet the needs of the youth of Huerfano County.
