Each program offered by Tri-County Health Network directly relates to our mission to improve health for everyone in our rural communities. We believe health is more than healthcare, which is why we focus our work on helping community members access all the resources they need to lead vibrant and healthy lives.
Since 2014, TCHNetwork has been developing an array of behavioral health programs to fill identified gaps within our communities. Our services now include teletherapy in English and Spanish, educational courses on mental health and suicide prevention. We recognize it may be difficult to know where to find resources, so we have compiled an online resource guide available to all community members.
Through in-home assessments, palliative care and resource sharing, our Care Coordination team work to address health beyond the clinical walls. By connecting community members to the resources they need, our Care Coordination team helps them to remain in their homes for as long as they choose.
Founded to reduce drug and alcohol consumption among youth in the Telluride School District, our Communities that Care program includes a coalition of parents, teachers and community members dedicated to reducing youth substance use.
Our Skippy school-based oral health program was designed to make it as easy and convenient as possible for children to access comprehensive dental care by removing barriers to care. TCHNetwork has partnered with local schools to bring Skippy, our mobile dental clinic, twice each year providing a full suite of oral health care to youth ages 0-18 at no additional cost to the family.
Through our Multicultural Advocacy Team, TCHNetwork continuously seeks ways to work towards social equity in our region to create sustained personal well-being. We seek to champion diversity, equity and inclusion internally and externally by partnering with organizations, collaborating with community leaders and providing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training.
We want our communities to thrive in good and bad times alike, which is why we administer a variety of emergency funds for residents of San Miguel, Ouray and Montrose Counties.
To address the lack of affordable eyewear options in our area, our New Eyes program aims to provide anyone in the tri-county area who is not able to afford prescription eyewear with the glasses they need to see clearly.
Eating well is an essential part of your health and no one should go without. Tri-County Health Network can assist you with several resources including enrollment in SNAP benefits, food bank locations and hours, registration for our Cooking Matters courses that teach individuals how to prepare healthy meals on a budget, and our FoodRx program where community members can receive funds for purchasing fruits and vegetables.
Our certified Enrollment Navigators can help determine your eligibility for Medicaid, Connect for Health Colorado, and Colorado Health Plan Plus (CHP+).

Transportation shouldn’t be a barrier- that’s why we facilitate a regional shuttle to help community members get to medical appointments on the Western Slope. Priority is given to those with medical appointments, though anyone can ride the shuttle for a small fee.
