Supporting Our Community Through the COVID-19 Crisis

As part of its COVID-19 emergency management and recovery strategy, Adams County Government, through the County Manager’s Office, has identified key areas where there is an opportunity to ensure its resources and support are strengthened and effectively and efficiently aligned for residents and businesses. To better understand emerging needs, provide information and aid in real-time, including policy and system shifts that may be needed, the following Response and Recovery Teams have been developed:

  1. Childcare for Critical Personnel
  2. Business Support and Retention
  3. Senior Services
  4. Uninsured and Healthcare
  5. Housing Stability
  6. Food Security and Basic Essentials
  7. Support for the Unemployed and Future Workforce

Adams County Government invites and welcomes participation on these critical Response and Recovery Teams from cross-sector community partners as there is also opportunity to come together to stay abreast of what others are doing related to emergency management, share resources with one another, and identify and lift opportunities for potential coordination of efforts. This includes information sharing, breaking down community-wide barriers, and aligning policies and resources to support emergency response efforts. Response and Recovery Teams will be working to accomplish the following:

  1. Determine and monitor Baseline and Targets, in alignment with state and national COVID-19 response priorities
  2. Determine action needed, in alignment with state and national COVID-19 response priorities, to meet needs lifted through the Response and Recovery Teams
  3. Identify assets and resources and make them publicly available online
  4. Identify specific resources to be put in place by Adams County Government in order to meet targets
  5. Determine where other work is needed in order to close the gaps that can be addressed by Adams County Government and Subcommittee members

Adams County has enlisted the support of the Rocky Mountain Cradle to Career Partnership’s staff, referred to as the Backbone, to provide behind the scenes support for these seven strategic teams.
