Imagine a World Where All Children Thrive
LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN
MONTEZUMA COUNTY SUPPORTS EACH OTHER
A team of high school students (Child Abuse Prevention Society (C.A.P.S.)) volunteered to paint a mural to raise awareness about child abuse in Montezuma County and to encourage residents to report their suspicions if they believe a child is suffering from maltreatment. Sponsored by The Michalak Farmers Insurance Agency – Durango and Region 9 Economic Development District of Southwest Colorado
If you haven’t had a chance to drive by the mural (on North Market St.), check out the images below.
It is beautiful, and such an great addition to our community.

More and more teenagers are finding themselves in charge of their younger siblings while staying home without adult supervision during the pandemic. And to ensure the safety of children left home on their own, United Way of Southwest Colorado and the Four Corners Child Advocacy Center are offering a Safe Sitter Class for area kids.
