The Agricultural Economic Crisis is real.
The resulting stress is real. Let’s TALK about it.
Crisis can take many forms for many different people. Don’t know where to start? Start Here
“When a farmer and rancher is facing a financial crisis, it can create an emotional toll on every aspect of life. From paying bills, to feeding their children, caring for the livestock and crops, retirement options, and even what they will be able to leave their heirs, the worry and anxiety can be overwhelming. The agricultural community has always come together to help our neighbors in a time of need and that is what this effort is all about: pulling together to help others through this stressful time. I encourage you to reach out to the Colorado Crisis Services if you, or someone you love, is struggling.”
