San Juan Regional Council Grants $35,000 to Bright Futures for Early Childhood and Families

The San Juan Regional Council is focused on early childhood education, and youth mentoring. The Council recently awarded a $35,000 grant to Bright Futures for Early Childhood and Families to support the expansion of their Parents as Teachers Program in Ouray and San Miguel counties. This program provides parents with the necessary resources and support to empower children, from birth to age five, to realize their full potential. Through the completion of a series of home visits from parent educators, parents learn how to incorporate fun, educational activities into everyday tasks. With the help of grant funding in 2012, Bright Futures was able to hire two new educators to assist with home visits, including a bilingual teacher with an ESL degree. In addition to Bright Futures, the San Juan Regional Council has also provided funding to support the Parents as Teachers program in Delta and most recently provided funding for a pilot Parents as Teachers program in Montrose County. Moving forward, the San Juan Regional Council will consider new ways to support early childhood development in the region.
