|Connection is not just something that makes us happy, but it makes us happy for the very reason that it is ingrained in our DNA. We are wired for CONNECTION. Inspired by a valley-wide campaign in the roaring fork valley supporting the wellbeing and mental health of our community.|
Aspen Strong is proud to have hosted The 4th annual Changing Brains, Changing Lives symposium featuring thought leaders in education and mental health exploring the topic of connection. How we connect with our brain, with others, and with our community.
This event empowers our youth, our parents, our schools and businesses, and our community in strengthening our CONNECTIONS.
Each Aspen tree within a colony is connected by a single root pattern that thrives beneath the surface of the soil. Aspen Strong aims at creating a community that cultivates interdependence and strength, replicating its very own, the Aspen tree. Aspen Strong is here to support residents and employees in Pitkin, Eagle, and Garfield County, from Aspen to Parachute.
When you build connections within your community and within yourself, you develop a voice that can make a difference.
Strong Minds. Strong Connections. Strong Community. https://aspenstrong.org/connect

Aperture of Hope…seeing the light! A creative approach in reaching out to kids, teens and adults of all ages helping them to navigate, see the world in new ways and find focus in a busy ever-changing and sometimes complicated lifestyle. Utilizing the art of photography as a tool to explore and tell their story can be a positive outlet for challenging situations and struggles one may encounter.
Valley Settlement’s mission is to empower immigrant families in the Roaring Fork Valley to improve their lives. Our goal is a community where immigrants belong and are engaged and acting toward the success of their children and themselves.
