The Anschutz Family Foundation is providing financial support to Delta County children through the Families Plus wrap-around mentoring program. Families Plus has been granted $7,500 toward drawing in volunteers and resources aimed at helping children in challenging circumstance to develop self-sufficiency.
Self-sufficiency is a focus of investment both for Families Plus and the Anschutz Family Foundation. The Families Plus program helps children succeed in school, join into sports and skill-building activities, and enjoy time with a mentoring family that also promotes skill building.
The Anschutz Family Foundation supports Colorado nonprofit organizations that assist people to help themselves while nurturing and preserving their self-respect. The Foundation encourages endeavors that strengthen families and communities and advance individuals to become productive and responsible citizens. There is a special interest in self-sufficiency, community development and programs aimed at the economically disadvantaged, the young, the elderly and the disabled. The foundation is also dedicated to funding efforts in rural Colorado.
Families Plus is a locally developed outreach to children that has been providing intensive and long-term supports to Delta County children for many years. Family mentors volunteer regularly, while others offer help once a year to help with a repair or deliver a Mother's Day gift. Please call the Families Plus office, 115 Grand Avenue, 874-0464, if you would like to help.blog comments powered by Disqus
