Black Lives Matter. A message of support and intent from La Puente for our community. "Justice is what love looks like in public"
This year’s Hunger Education Week events look much different than events in the past, but still, hold the same amazing opportunities to help others. Rather than cancel this annual education series due to COVID, the La Puente staff believe we can all benefit from the support and education this event provides to the community.
La Puente thanks the SLV & Beyond for their support or our Food Bank Network & the "Buy a Semi Food Campaign." In fact, our community responded so quickly to our plea that the paint our “semi-meter” didn’t even get to dry before we had already reached our initial goal.
La Puente is proud to serve on the front lines during the pandemic. However, we can’t do it alone! We are asking for community volunteers to help with our services including sack meals and food delivery. Protective gear will be provided for all volunteers.
As an essential service, La Puente is offering COVID-19 Community Emergency Services such as street outreach, sack meals, public showers, financial assistance, emergency food delivery, and more.
We are so thankful to live in a place that understands that community is not a noun, it is a verb set in motion each and every single day. Amidst these trying times, we are so proud of the many partners and heroes that have come together to ensure that our community can get through this crisis. Below you will find a library of community resources. We are stronger together!
La Puente is on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, La Puente's essential services are needed by a growing number in our community. We cannot continue operating without your help!
See how Working Together is creating change in our community. The ultimate goal of Working Together, a collaboration of several SLV nonprofits, is to help families increase their vocational and educational skills, so families will be more stable in the long-term.
It’s that time of year again! Valley-Wide Health Systems Inc., La Puente Home, and Adams State University Theatre Department are sponsoring this year’s “Share the Magic” Private Gala Reception & Premier Holiday Play. The fundraising event proceeds benefit La Puente Home & Programs and presents an opportunity for the community members of the San Luis Valley to help those in need.
We are so incredibly proud to share that La Puente's Executive Director, Lance Cheslock, has been selected as the Community Trailblazer Award winner by the Community Resource Center!
