On Oct. 9, 1998, a brand new way of helping children in challenging circumstances sprouted up in Delta County. The program was designed for underserved and vulnerable children of Delta County and started off modestly providing professional mental health care providers and mentors to only a handful of children.
Aug. 19 was a busy day for one Delta County nonprofit. That was the day Families Plus hosted an annual picnic to help program children and parents celebrate the successes they have enjoyed during the year -- and the children left with some basic school supplies to start their year on a good note.
Summer vacation is winding to a close. In a few short weeks, it will be time to put away summer fun and replace it with school -- waking up early, catching the bus, and attending classes.
Every year since 1998, Families Plus, a local nonprofit that works with at-risk children, has ensured that each child enrolled in their program receives a Father's Day gift to give to his/her father and male mentor. For the last several Father's Days, the gift has been cookies and a Frisbee, or ball, or some other item that can be used for the child and father/mentor to spend fun time together.
The Families Plus program has recently been designated a mental health specialty clinic by the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health.
