Did you know 1 in 3 Coloradans struggle to afford food?
This fall, Lafayette voters will be asked to approve or reject a ballot measure to increase funding for mental health and human services. Lafayette’s 2021 Mental Health and Human Services Ballot will provide much needed funding to support local non-profits to help those families in our community who are encountering challenges such as food insecurity, mental health, domestic violence, medical care, and inability to afford rent, utilities, or childcare.
Sister Carmen stands behind this ballot measure. Local human service agencies—including Sister Carmen—have experienced unprecedented growth and service demands, and obtaining enough money to meet the increasing needs in our community has been a challenge. These variables continue to place significant strains on the ability of community-based human services safety net providers to effectively meet Lafayette residents’ needs within available resources.
Watch Harain, one of Sister Carmen’s Bilingual Advocates and Cultural Ambassadors, discuss the importance of these resources. Learn more by visiting www.lafayetteco.gov/2021Ballot
