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, Chaffe, 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.

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.
