Alpine Legal Services (UWBB)
 
 
 
Alpine Legal Services mission is to ensure access to justice by providing and coordinating quality legal services that protect and advance fundamental legal rights.Our service area is located on the Western Slope of Colorado, about a three-hour drive west, up into the mountains from Denver (180 miles) and about a 1.5-hour drive east (88 miles) from Grand Junction. Our area boasts scenic rivers and other four-season tourist attractions, especially our many festivals, mountain trails, fabulous ski resorts and relaxing hot springs. Our local communities experience significant levels of poverty due to a large number of low-paying, tourist- and ranching-related service jobs and our rural, low-population geographic area. Population is centered around towns ranging from trendy Aspen in the southeast to remote Parachute out west. We also work with a high number of Hispanic residents, so bilingual skills are a plus. The UWBB VISTA Project will offer $200/month housing stipends (paid directly to VISTA members’ landlords). Our VISTA cohort will include at least 12 positions. We periodically will work together as a team on poverty-related community projects. The VISTA member place at Alpine Legal Services would focus on marketing and fundraising. The VISTA member would help create and implement a social media plan to make the work of Alpine Legal Services more visible, understandable and accessible. Additionally, the VISTA member also would be responsible for developing diversified funding streams, including identifying grants and donors and would assist in planning and executing our annual fundraising event.
