Mission: Family & Youth Initiatives serves over 350 Chaffee County youth and families a year through four programs including Chaffee County Mentors, Nurturing Parenting Program, Youth @ Crossroads, and Community Partnership for Families.
Vision: Ensuring Chaffee County youth and families are the safest, most healthy and self sufficient in Colorado.
Family & Youth Initiatives “began” in 2006. The organization was born out of the Build A Generation® planning process which helped to spearhead prevention programs including Chaffee County Mentors, Youth @ Crossroads and Boys & Girls Club of Chaffee County to reduce risks and increase opportunities, recognition and skills for local youth and families. After a three-month process looking at pros and cons of co-locating programs and services under one roof, Chaffee County Mentors, Youth @ Crossroads and Nurturing Parenting Program came together under the umbrella of Family & Youth Initiatives, to streamline and coordinate youth and family programs within the community. The Community Partnership for Families was added in 2014.
