A message from the Executive Director Jessica Scott

If I was asked to sum up the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments (UAACOG) in 5 words or less I would have to say "Community Service and Beyond".  UAACOG or "COG" employs a wonderful group of people who are passionate about the programs they administer and the communities they serve. While the majority of the residents within our service area do not know what UAACOG is, most people have heard of the programs we offer.  This organization impacts many lives in our four county COG Region, Chaffee, Custer, Fremont and Lake Counties. Some programs serve additional counties that include Park, Teller and Saguache.  

Our mission statement holds as true today as it did back in 1974, our inaugural year and that is to provide quality services to promote self-sufficiency and healthy lifestyles for individuals and families by enabling them to improve their lives.

When it comes to our world, it’s always a good time to check in with how we can love it back for providing us with a home all these years.

Friday, July 30 is considered International Day of Friendship. Celebrate with these ways you can show the people you love the most just how much they mean to you.

While normally “back to school” is reserved for children, it turns out that this time of year is important for every age. That’s because you’re never too old to continue learning, and it can help you live up to your true potential in everyday life.
