This week, we are announcing “LCFC Gives Week.” Inspired by the #GivingTuesdayNow Day of Global Action for Giving and Unity in Response to COVID-19, The Latino Community Foundation of Colorado is launching a week-long social media campaign to raise funding for the Ayuda (Help) Colorado fund.

Ayuda Colorado has been designed specifically to support Latino led and serving (LLS) nonprofit organizations and immigrant and refugee serving (IRS) organizations through direct grants, capacity building services and resource assistance. LCFC has already distributed $100,000 to 43 organizations from across Colorado, and that number will jump to $400,000 by the end of this week. Our goal is to raise and distribute $1.5 million in funding in 2020. We need your help to reach our goal!

All this week we will be launching videos from grantees, funders, donors and others who believe in our work. We hope some of their stories will inspire you, and that for those of you who are able to give, you can donate an amount that feels good to you to the Ayuda Colorado fund. 100% of individual donations will go directly to the nonprofits that serve Latino and immigrant/refugee communities. Stay Tuned or Donate Now.

SLV Emergency

Daily Update - April 2, 2020 - English and Spanish

SAN LUIS VALLEY - We want to start today with a message from Governor Polis: “I’m going to say this again and again: This is not a vacation; it’s a pandemic. Stay home unless absolutely necessary. There are still an alarming number of people traveling to our mountain and rural communities, putting themselves and others at risk. Whether you’re a second homeowner or weekend warrior, please stay home.”

Testing supplies are extremely limited at this time, so not all who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will be tested. For those who experience mild symptoms, testing does not change the treatment. Those experiencing mild symptoms can care for themselves at home as they would for a regular cold while following isolation instructions below.

The statewide stay-at-home order is for everyone, all the time, except for brief essential activities like getting groceries or performing work that has been deemed as essential. Isolation and quarantine go beyond that.

Isolation can be done at home or, in the worst cases, in the hospital. It is important for those who experience mild symptoms to do the right thing and self-isolate at home until you are fever-free for 72 hours without medication and it’s been 7 days since the onset of symptoms and your symptoms have improved. During this self-isolation period, do not leave your home for any reason except to get emergency medical care. As much as possible, separate yourself from household members. Some patients will experience worsening symptoms, becoming sick enough to require hospitalization.

Quarantine is for those who have had close contact with someone who is sick. If you have been exposed, you may transmit the COVID-19 virus to others before you develop symptoms, which could take up to 14 days. If you have been exposed, you must stay home for 14 days while you see if symptoms develop. Do not leave your home except to receive medical care as instructed by your doctor. Arrange for someone else to deliver your groceries to your doorstep; do not go to work or out into the community for any reason during your quarantine period.

If you have felt ill since March 1st, please complete our SLV Symptom Tracker Survey at www.slvemergency.org/slv-covid-19 to help us get a better understanding of what is happening in our community. The survey is anonymous. Though it will help us track the spread, it will not help us answer the question of how many people have recovered from COVID-19 here in the SLV. There have been no new positive cases of COVID-19 identified today. Local numbers are updated daily at www.slvemergency.org/slv-covid-19

The best thing everyone else can do is to follow the state and local public health orders to stay at home. Businesses and health care workers are making some serious sacrifices during this pandemic. Let us as a community make sure that those sacrifices have not been in vain. Continue to stay at home as much as possible, without visitors, even if you feel fine. Because the truth is with this virus, sometimes people can transmit it to others before they even know they have it.

In this troubled time, it is also important for those with more than they need to remember our local food banks. The Food Bank Network of the SLV is accepting donations of food and household or personal supplies to be distributed across the valley. To make a cash donation, send a check to Food Bank Network SLV, 513 6th St. Alamosa CO 81101. Your donation can be designated for a particular food bank community (on your check).

As always, we are working diligently to minimize the impact of COVID on our community! Stay home, Stay Safe, and we will get through this together, one step at a time!

2 de Abril, Información Diaria

SAN LUIS Valley - Queremos comenzar hoy con un mensaje del gobernador Polis: "Voy a decir esto una y otra vez: Esto no son vacaciones; Es una pandemia. Quédese en casa a menos que sea absolutamente necesario. Todavía hay un número alarmante de personas que viajan a nuestras comunidades rurales y de montaña, poniéndose en peligro a sí mismas y a otras personas. Ya sea que sea un segundo propietario de casa o un veraneante de fin de semana, quédese en casa ".

Los suministros de prueba son extremadamente limitados en este momento, por lo que no todos los que experimentan síntomas de COVID-19 serán examinados. Para aquellos que experimentan síntomas leves, las pruebas no cambian el tratamiento. Aquellos que experimentan síntomas leves pueden cuidarse en casa como lo harían con un resfriado regular mientras siguen las instrucciones de aislamiento siguientes.

La orden de estadía en el hogar en todo el estado es para todos, todo el tiempo, excepto para actividades breves y esenciales como comprar alimentos o realizar un trabajo que se ha considerado esencial. El aislamiento y la cuarentena van más allá de eso.

El aislamiento se puede hacer en casa o en el hospital, en los peores casos. Es importante que aquellos que experimentan síntomas leves hagan lo correcto para autoaislarse en casa hasta que estén libres de fiebre durante 72 horas sin medicamentos y hayan pasado 7 días desde la aparición de los síntomas y sus síntomas hayan mejorado. Durante este período de autoaislamiento, no salga de su hogar por ningún motivo, excepto para obtener atención médica de emergencia. Lo más posible, mantenga distancia con miembros del hogar también. Algunos pacientes experimentarán un empeoramiento de los síntomas, enfermandolo suficiente como para requerir hospitalización.

La cuarentena es para aquellos que han tenido contacto cercano con alguien que está enfermo. Si ha estado expuesto, puede transmitir el virus COVID-19 a otras personas antes de desarrollar síntomas, lo que podría demorar hasta 14 días. Si ha estado expuesto, debe quedarse en casa durante 14 días mientras ve si se desarrollan síntomas. No salga de su hogar excepto para recibir atención médica según las instrucciones de su médico. Haga arreglos para que alguien más entregue sus alimentos a su puerta; no vaya a trabajar ni a la comunidad por ningún motivo durante su período de cuarentena.

Si se ha sentido enfermo desde el 1 de marzo, complete nuestra Encuesta de seguimiento de síntomas de SLV en www.slvemergency.org/slv-covid-19 para ayudarnos a comprender mejor lo que está sucediendo en nuestra comunidad. La encuesta es anónima. Aunque nos ayudará a rastrear la propagación, nos será difícil recopilar datos para responder a la pregunta de cuántas personas se han recuperado de COVID-19 aquí en el SLV. Actualmente, no se han identificado nuevos casos positivos de COVID-19 en el SLV. Los números locales se actualizan diariamente en www.slvemergency.org/slv-covid-19

Lo mejor que todos pueden hacer es seguir las órdenes de salud pública locales y estatales para quedarse en casa. Las empresas y los trabajadores de la salud están haciendo algunos sacrificios serios durante esta pandemia. Como comunidad, asegurémonos de que esos sacrificios no hayan sido en vano. Continúe en casa tanto como sea posible, sin visitas, incluso si se siente bien. Debido a que la verdad es con este virus, a veces las personas pueden transmitirlo a otros incluso antes de saber que lo tienen.

En estos tiempos difíciles, también es importante para aquellos con más de lo que necesitan recordar nuestros bancos de alimentos locales. La Red de bancos de alimentos de SLV está aceptando donaciones de alimentos y suministros domésticos o personales para distribuir en todo el valle. Para hacer una donación en efectivo, envíe un cheque a Food Bank Network SLV 513 6th St. Alamosa CO 81101. Su donación puede designarse para una comunidad de bancos de alimentos en particular (en su cheque).

¡Como siempre, estamos trabajando diligentemente para minimizar el impacto de COVID en nuestra comunidad! ¡Quédese en casa, manténgase seguro y lo superaremos juntos, un paso a la vez!

Please help one of our families start fresh in their new apartment. They have been through a lot and it would be great if they can get some support in their new "home".
An Colorado women who came from a New England state Found this ploy of landlords conflicting with the State and Federal government on the income one must have in their pockets per month is, nearly a nation-wide con. It did not exist in her small town. It makes good people, who are badly paid homeless. Landlords are saying, Only, those making 2 to 3 times above “minimum wage” can rent an apartment. This is one of the basic needs, Housing. Landowners has no added privileges, as any US Folk. The owning of land, does not entitle them to create laws according to whim. As The tenant must have access to 2 times the minimum wage, nor 2.5 times, nor 3 times. That is up to someone we the people elected, as lawmakers, or legislators. Also landlords, have no inherent power to say they are legally, insisting renters have 2 to 3 times what the government says is the minimum wage. That is the unfortunately reduced amount, that Our government says someone can live upon. Not butcher’s nor property owners, or medication providers, are suppose to call for prices, over the minimum wages. This is Un-American. It causes inflation. The Fair Housing Act allows landlords to check to make sure the tenant can Pay their rent. This is to pay the rent. And the RENT Only. It’s not to insure their income is large enough to also pay the utilizes, the car payment, for a vacation, and the maintenance on a yacht. They may not have these things. They may take the bus. Not have to pay to scrape barnacles from under the hull of an imaginary boat. Any how when the rumor that the Colorado Legislation was going to take up the issue of making this practice a law, is when Jan had had more then enough. She is about to call everyone dealing with Housing to prevent this from becoming Law. I am also asking What gives an out of state landlord, the right to create $900 a month for a one bedroom apt, the right to say They cannot afford the basics life. When luxuries are included in the hefty price? It’s not the Fair housing Act. It says the exact opposite. SHE WILL PHONE CONSTITUTIONAL Professors in the state. Jobs with Justice, Regular folks. She tried for 3 months to get ahold of a group in the state who fought against one of the lowest apartment evictions notice in the country. The meager notice, was for 3 days. Last year, in 2019, they got a law passed, for a seven day eviction notice. This gives the Non- Payer more time to come up with funds. And is fair to both parties. I have called United for A New Economy for 3 months, and yet to speak to a represented. But I did speak to a State Senator, personally. To inform her what is happening, in December, or when-ever the law is filed. Across this country, Landlords has been breaking federal Law, the Fair Housing Act for decades with impunity, with this SCAM. Its time it stops! By denying rents to the Badly paid, proprietors Make people homeless. They imposed a civil death sentence, and needless inhumane hardship, upon the 100 people they turn away and deny housing too. For every two or 3 who are unable to pay after 3-7 months. Landlords are asking too High of a guarantee, from renters. And asking outrageous prices for rents. Instead of requiring tenants make double & triple, the times of the rent they should be charging half of the persons income. When a moderate one bedroom goes for $900. A month and the disabled person, makes only $1,000 a month, they are going to have a hard time paying the rent. And other’s of Life’s Basics. But if the government is only paying that person $1,000 a month they, through no fault of their own, cannot come up with the 2.5 times Landlords Stipulate they need. Renters, need 1.5 times to break even, not 2 & 3 times as landlords out of the air figures says. They will not go out to eat, any more than once a month. Not have dates. Not pay for medical insurance. Have no vacations. But is this living? As a low - income person, I say Not. The US Constitution say no discrimination against any class. This is inequity against the poor, of all colors, Black, White, Brown, and Natives. Only the Landlords do not need to announce they are prejudice. As they usurp or steal the governments, powers. And too many denied rents, say nothing. Who do they tell? Not the police. This is a civil matter. The Colorado Civil Rights board is who they tell. The Attorney General; But the those made homeless by this practice, is just trying to live. To exists, when they have been told by Corp. Landlords policy’s they are not worthy of life. They are to be denied, housing. On account of a false number of supporting life, one for the costs of luxury rents. Because they do not make an arbitrary 2 and 3 times as much as the minimum wage. They are denied rents, at the decision of money grubbing Corp. land lords. Who play the game by non-existing rules their Associations made up. To routinely turn away hundreds when only 3 out of 97 cannot pay the rent. They no longer need to say We Do not rent to blacks, Asians, or Browns. They are falsely saying we do not rent to the poor. Or the SCAM We though of. I seek many people to help me fight for justice. 719.465.3454. Jan Lightfoot.
