Welcome to CLLARO
(CFP) seeks to expand the potential of emerging diverse leaders, strengthen their professional skills, and ultimately help mold the future public policy leaders in Colorado.
The Community Health Advocacy Program, or CHAP, is a program developed from a local effort started at CLLARO ten years ago called the Community Leadership Training Program. Today, the CHAP program recruits emerging leaders in the community for a training program that includes developing their leadership skills, exploring the social determinants of community health, and creating their own community health projects that address the issues that they are most passionate about.

More than one out of five Coloradans are Latino, including some whose families were here before Colorado became a state. Other Latinos are—like most Americans—either immigrants or descendants of immigrants. Latinos have always played a vital and constructive role in the Colorado economy. Nevertheless, Latinos’ median annual household income is $23,550 less than that of non-Hispanic whites. Twenty-eight percent of Latino children live in poverty. While Colorado’s high school four-year graduation rate in Colorado has increased to 79%, Latinos’ high school four-year graduation rate—at 71%–lags behind the rest of the state. The percentage of Latinos lacking health insurance is over two-and-a-half times that of whites. Colorado’s Latino elderly population is growing nearly twice as fast as other Coloradans over 65, and will more than triple between 2010 and 2030, placing increasing burdens on their families who care for their disabled elders.
