Colorado Springs Service Center under contract
As we have communicated in recent months, one way Girl Scouts of Colorado is becoming more efficient on a smaller budget is to focus our resources on people instead of property. We have good news to share — we have a contract to sell the Colorado Springs Service Center. We plan to better serve our members in the Pikes Peak area by locating and securing new office space that is more in line with our needs:
In a more centrally-located area
With better access to staff for members
To reduce expenses so more resources can go toward service to girls
The move is expected to happen in late January. This philosophy of people over property is driving action statewide. We have sublet part of our Fort Collins Service Center. Our Durango Service Center has closed and moved to a direct-service model. We are pursuing options for creative office space use in Pueblo. We are also exploring options for a smaller, more affordable space for the Denver Service Center.
We want to assure our members that we are 100 percent committed to excellent service in the Pikes Peak area and throughout Colorado. Our staff will be more in touch with volunteers, and we have set standards for improved response times. The online ordering of merchandise from GSUSA is working well statewide, especially taking advantage of special free shipping opportunities. In addition, we have weekly merchandise deliveries to Colorado Springs and mobile shops at major events. We thank you for your patience as we transition to a leaner, grassroots council.
