The vision of the We Are Chaffee storytelling initiative is to unite Chaffee County residents by recognizing that every member of our community has experiences and stories that contribute to the fabric of our culture. By sharing our stories intentionally, and listening intently, we can identify the similarities between us. To view all of the We Are Chaffee stories, please go to
