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.

What are you waiting for? The benefits of mentoring will not only give back to your mentee, but also to your community, and even to you.

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in checking in on others, it’s important for your mental health to practice self-care.

Who knew that making a difference in the world could be as easy as wi-fi and your own couch? Leave it to the world of do-gooders to find ways to volunteer, even in the midst of a global pandemic!
