COVID-19 Resources & Updates

We will continue to keep this page updated with information and resources.

As COVID-19 swept the through our country it changed the course of our daily business and our daily lives. We want to provide our community, both businesses and those that find themselves out of work, with a hub where you can find resources to help you get through this very difficult and confusing time. We also included information for community members to find food options, as well as places to turn to for mental and emotional wellness.

If there is anything that you feel should be added to this page or updated, please email welcome@buenavistacolorado.org

We will make frequent updates as more resources become available. Please know that we are working closely with local agencies to find ways that we can continue to support you.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. And remember…we are all in this together!

SHORT TERM LODGING REQUEST

Fill out form here
The form should only be completed and forwarded when there is a request to provide short-term lodging for emergency purposes and critical infrastructure. Examples would be the provision of short-term lodging for construction workers at our high school, temporary lodging for hospital personnel, an overnight stay for out-of-town food delivery trucks, a family stranded due to motor vehicle breakdowns. The intent is to minimize exposure of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and we can only accomplish this by compliance and assistance of our community as an entirety.

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW EITHER NEEDS HELP GETTING SUPPLIES OR IS AVAILABLE TO OFFER HELP TO THOSE WHO ARE HIGH RISK, YOU CAN USE THIS GROUP TO REACH OUT!
