Commissioners proclaimed September 2019 as Kinship Month to encourage collaboration and support by community members and to commend the hard work, love and time kinship parents give to the children in their care. 

Community-based organizations accept the Workforce Development Month proclamation during the Mesa County Commissioners' public hearing Monday morning. Among those accepting the proclamation were: Mesa County Workforce Center, Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, Mesa County Library, Western Colorado Community College, Colorado Mesa University, School District 51 and CareerWise.

Mesa County Commissioners recognize that a skilled and flexible workforce is vital to business performance and supporting Mesa County’s competitive advantage, which is why they proclaimed September 2019 as Workforce Month.
