In response to Covid-19, Team UP’s Food Security Action Team has joined forces with The Montezuma Food Coalition to address the community’s food needs through multi-agency collaboration. The Coalition has expanded its network and breadth of work to include Montezuma and Dolores Counties and Tribal and Indigenous Communities in The Four Corners region. Through weekly team meetings, and bi-weekly regional calls, emergent needs are discussed, resources combined, and food distributed. The Coalition strives to be attentive to the current and ever-changing needs of our community during this crisis and to provide support to individuals and organizations as efficiently as possible. If you would like to support these efforts, please feel free to join one of our calls, which are open to the public.

Team UP is a Collective Impact Initiative in Montezuma and Dolores Counties, bringing together a wide range of individuals and organizations, all working towards a common goal – improving outcomes for kids from cradle to career. Since this is a broad goal, Team UP Action Teams focus on more specific topics, such as Family Engagement, Child Maltreatment Prevention, Behavioral Health, Food Security, Youth Mental Health, the importance of Early Childhood development, and Early Childhood Education Expansion. United Way of Southwest Colorado serves as the backbone organization for Team UP.
