Big Timbers Community Alliance has developed over the past 8 years through several successful initiatives (i.e. LiveWell Prowers County, Healthy Places, and the Prowers County Health Alliance) that brought diverse partners together to work on obesity prevention. In 2016, Big Timbers Community Alliance became a project under the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center. The Alliance consists of Prowers Medical Center, High Plains Community Health Center, Southeast Health Group, The Government of the City of Lamar, the HOPE Center, the Government of Prowers County, as well as all interested community members. Our focus is to continue to bring both organizations and community members together through a collaborative process to create a healthy, thriving Prowers County.
Big Timbers Community Alliance uses the collective impact model as its foundation for work to move toward the following four high-level results: all residents are physically active; all residents have access to healthy food; families choose to stay, live, and invest in Prowers County; and Prowers County is a deeply connected community with strong civic health.
