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.

The spooky season is coming to an end before we know it, but that doesn’t mean we’re over October. Scary doesn’t always have to be bad. Instead, use these final weeks as a reminder to do some scary-good deeds and give back to your community.

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.

It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. As we enter October and inch closer to the holiday season, year-end giving and volunteering also ramps up.
