The Team UP Southwest Colorado Family Engagement Action Team (affectionately known as FEAT), in Dolores County, has had great success over the past year hosting Facebook Live events on a wide range of topics that are beneficial to families. Some of the topics covered have been:
- Organizational Tips and Tricks
- Car Seat and Seat Belt Safety and Distracted Driving
- Family Services Available in the Dove Creek Community
- Camping Safety
- Staying Sane During the Holidays
- The Dangers of Vaping (most widely viewed)
Each event is hosted by Kay Daves, long-time Dove Creek resident and active community member, and features a community member expert on the topic at hand.
The most recent event was “How to Manage Stress Without Losing Your Mind,” with Annie Stiasny, Dove Creek School Counselor. While this was recorded pre-COVID-19, the tips and information are very pertinent to the current time.
