COVID-19 Personal & Health Resources
All Personal Resources have been combined HERE and are updated regularly.


Nothing is more powerful or contagious than hope. That’s the message North Range Behavioral Health is asking us to share throughout Weld County with “Signs of Hope.” North Range has provided a limited number of signs to us, to distribute in our circles and help spread the word.
 
The initiative, generously funded by a donation from Bank of Colorado in Greeley, is reminding people that a positive outlook not only helps individuals, it encourages those around them. There are still challenges ahead, but this is one way we can let our community to know that we’ll tackle them together.
 
Thank you again for your commitment and dedication to supporting our community in your own way. As we display these signs, let us also remember that hope begins with each one of us. 
Would you like a yard sign?! Call or email Natalie at the Fort Lupton Chamber and we will see that a sign gets to you. 303-857-4474 or fortluptonchamber@gmail.com
