Backcountry Communities Thriving

The mission of Backcountry Communities Thriving is to ensure the well-being of each child, family and individual in Julian and surrounding rural areas through advocacy, service and support to foster a thriving community.

BCT’s Executive Director, Hilary Ward, is a member of the Community Action Partnership Board (CAP). We urge you to complete this needs assessment survey. Our rural community voice is frequently not heard by the rest of the County. This is the perfect opportunity to express our needs and priorities. The data from this survey will be used to identify and assess the needs and resources requested so that our community can become healthy, safe and self-sufficient.

If you complete the survey by February 9th, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.
