Cultural Broker Resilience Program Coordinator

Boulder County has funded community resilience building efforts for the past three years, following the 2013 Flood. The Office of Resilience and Recovery was formed in early 2018 to coordinate internal and external resilience projects. At the end of 2017, the City of Longmont, Colorado received a grant from the Division of Local Affairs in the State of Colorado. Resiliency for All (RFA) identified barriers and created a bridge between a vulnerable sector of our Latino population, community resources and local governments in the City of Longmont and Boulder County. The Project brought the community together to identify barriers and develop recommendations that would be more inclusive of this segment of the community and create space for representation from this underserved portion of the community.
Some of the barriers included lack of connection to resources for both family and community, fear and discrimination. One of the recommendations highlighted the need to financially recruit, reward, and retain cultural brokers in local agencies and community. The Office of Resilience & Recovery is seeking a qualified consultant to work on implementing the County’s Cultural Broker resilience initiative to achieve our goal of strengthening community resilience by building capacity, increasing connectedness and fostering cooperation.
