“The great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small acts of kindness."

– Victor Hugo 


Thank you all for being a part of our Booze-less Summer this year! We have one more event coming up in August so if you haven't checked any of the past events, here's your chance!

* FREE Disc-golf at Two Gray Hares Disc-Golf course on August 18th 4-8pm

There are so many ways to prevent substance use every day and we are grateful for and inspired by each and every one of you. For doing what you do and doing it WELL. With each problem we are faced with as a small community, the more opportunity we are granted to come together. To tighten our bond. To develop and share our gifts & talents. 

There have been many heart-dropping tragedies this month relating directly to our youth in Taos. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all families, friends, and loved ones who were close with the beautiful souls that have moved on.

In the midst of these tragedies, we have been called to witness the light that can come peeking through the darkest of times. People coming together. Youth coming together. Support of individuals. Support of organizations. And a strengthening of our common thread. Our common goal: Making Taos a safer and healthier place to live and thrive.

One day at a time. One step at a time. One breath at a time. We are moving naturally into a new world of community and support fed by the heart. We thank you for all you do and we encourage you to continue lending your hands, hearts, eyes, and voice wherever and whenever you feel called.

If you have any questions about our events please reach out to us for more information and visit our website taosalive.org

Have a beautiful day Taos!

Blessings,
Taos Alive
