Families Plus is a Delta County nonprofit organization that plays a vital role in the fight to end poverty and improve the lives of local families. Families Plus supports the entire family through a wraparound package of service. It asks Delta County families to open their home and their hearts to children with complex needs. Volunteer mentoring families, the ability to visit the dentist, doctor and therapist regularly, assistance in school, working with parents on being effective with school, court and social agencies -- this a great opportunity for a struggling family to grow. Life can be difficult and Families Plus provides a culture of love and trust that offers a hand up to families in need.
As outreach coordinator, Hensley will be raising awareness and recruiting new volunteers to help with this extraordinary, life-changing organization. If you are interested in learning more about Families Plus, please call 970-874-0464 or email email@example.com.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
