Glenna Phelps- Aurich, Executive Director of Logan County Chamber of Commerce, (second from right) recently presented the Family Resource Center (FRC) this week's Business of the Week honor. On hand for the presentation were Megan Baney, FRC Executive Director Yvonne Draxler and Shantilly Mason.

..... In 2006, the Family Resource Center was established in Logan County by Karen Torres when it was recognized that our community had limited options for children to safely visit with their noncustodial parents.
..... There were also few or no resources for parents who wanted to improve their skills, create a better home environment, and make a better life for their children. In addition, there were few, if any, existing programs to connect struggling children and youth with our community’s many strong role models and resources.
..... Over the past 15 years, Family Resource Center has created programs to address these issues. Today, their organization helps families build parenting skills, reduces risks for child abuse and neglect through their Colorado Community Response Program, and provides high-risk youth with a place to belong.
..... In 2014, Family Resource Center was instrumental in bringing Clean Slate Recovery Support Group to Sterling to address the need for support to those addicted to drugs and alcohol.
..... Programs currently consist of supervised visitation/safe exchanges so children can maintain a relationship with both parents, a strong parent education program to encourage social/emotional growth in families, a grandparent/kinship support group, free GED and financial literacy classes, referral services, the Colorado Community Response Program, and youth programming focused on partnering with youth and empowering them to make healthy decisions for themselves, participate in their communities, and creating lasting social supports.
..... They reduce costs for their programs through active partnerships with community partners. These collaborations save them thousands of dollars in expenses every year in facility, supply, meals, and staff expenses.
..... Because of the generous support of the surrounding community, Family Resource Center is able to provide food to those in need through their Blessing Box Program. The locations are strategically spaced throughout Sterling to offer free and nutritious food on a 24-hour basis.

Shopping In Stores Offer
Things With Online Sales
While online retail rose during COVID-19, many of those DTC retailers are now opening brick and mortar stores. Why are so many online brands moving to physical retail stores? Because the Internet is fast, friction-free, but cold. In other words, online shopping has limits. Brick and mortar physical stores can do something for shoppers that online can’t ... provide a feeling.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado School of Public Health's updated statewide modeling report showing Colorado is currently in its fifth wave of infections. The estimated effective reproductive number in Colorado is 1.1, indicating increasing infections, but that value is lower than it has been over the last month. One in 99 Coloradans are estimated to be currently infected—and 70% of Coloradans are estimated to be immune, by vaccination or by prior infection.

Vaccines For More Than COVID Prevention
As students across Colorado head back to school, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) asks parents and guardians to keep vaccine-preventable diseases out of Colorado classrooms and help ensure continued and safe in-person learning. While children 11-years-old and younger are not yet eligible for any of the COVID-19 vaccines, there are other vaccines that protect them from 16 other infectious diseases, including measles, whooping cough, mumps, and varicella (chickenpox). The state is experiencing decreases in vaccination coverage as identified through aggregate, de-identified data self-reported to CDPHE by schools and child care providers for the 2020-2021 school year. With the exception of hepatitis B, immunization rates for school-required vaccines fell among kindergartners -- with coverage for polio and varicella falling below 90%.
