UAACOG Charity Golf Tournament


The Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments (UAACOG) will be hosting our First Annual Golf Tournament on September 24, 2021. This year’s tournament will benefit UAACOG’s Homeless Veterans Program.

UAACOG Homeless Veterans Program/Family Housing Navigator Program is designed to assist veterans, chronically homeless, youth, families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness, find housing. The proceeds from this year’s event will be designated to our homeless Veterans and assist them with housing expenses such as application fees and obtaining vital documentation, as well as providing support to overcome barriers and challenges they may face after a long period of being on the streets.

On May 27, 2021, Fremont County received National recognition for meeting “Functional Zero” with our homeless Veteran population. Fremont County is the 12th U.S. community to achieve this and the first community in Colorado. This incredible accomplishment could not have been reached without our Family Housing Navigator program and the partnerships we have within the community.

From golf contests to silent auction, and an outstanding lunch provided by Colorado Smokin’ Butts BBQ, you will enjoy a fun-filled day as well as your community investment. Golf participation is only $100 per person, with a limit of 50 players.

Our Veterans have served our Country with honor. With your support, it is our goal to break the cycle of homelessness among local veterans.
