Summary: A collaborative homeless camping development project to aid the homeless in the San Luis Valley of Colorado

La Puente Home, Inc. provides numerous supports for families and individuals experiencing poverty and mental health needs in the Alamosa and San Luis Valley region of rural southern Colorado. The City of Alamosa has recently donated three acres of land to provide a safer alternative for the homeless to camp. The city and La Puente is anticipating budget reductions in the coming year, which will greatly impact the development and organization of this much needed project. There is a need for water, windbreaks, shelter, picnic tables, parking, trees, as well as increased refuse and sanitation services. The intent of this small granted project is to start meeting the basic needs of the residents within this newly formed camp project. While this will be initially small in scope, the intent is to generate interest and collaborate to scale up the project in future years. Funds for this project will provide a shelter, picnic table, fire ring, bike rack, and parking for one campsite. Members of the Greeley Centennial World Community Service committee will provide service in the installation of the campsite equipment in summer 2020. The purpose of this visit is also to collaborate and build better relationships with members of the Alamosa Rotary club, city of Alamosa, and La Puente home. Through this collaboration, we will leverage collective resources in the future to scale up this project.
