About Us
Mission
The mission of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is to empower present and future generations by making the human past accessible and relevant through archaeological research, experiential education, and American Indian knowledge.

Archaeology
At the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, we believe that the study of the past is an intrinsically worthwhile endeavor that creates more informed and sustainable societies. Through a better understanding of human history, we discover what the past can teach us about the challenges we face today as a society.

The focus of Crow Canyon’s research is the ancestral Pueblo occupation of the Mesa Verde region in southwestern Colorado. Through well-designed archaeological research—in both the field and the laboratory—Crow Canyon has contributed to some of the most important new understandings in Southwestern archaeology in more than three decades. Assisted by thousands of students and adults enrolled in Crow Canyon research programs, we have conducted excavations at more than 30 ancient sites.

Education
Crow Canyon’s educational philosophy is grounded in the belief that everyone’s history matters. Crow Canyon’s award-winning experiential education programs for schools include one-day field trips and overnight programs lasting from two to five days. In addition, Crow Canyon offers three different summer camps for middle and high school students and programs for adult lifelong learners.

All our school and teen programs include hands-on activities that bring the past to life and articulate with national curriculum standards. Many programs actively engage students in real archaeological research in the field and/or the laboratory. The Crow Canyon curriculum was developed in consultation with American Indians, ensuring that their cultural perspectives are represented and respected.

American Indian Initiatives
Crow Canyon partners with American Indians to enrich our understanding of past and present American Indian cultures and to share that knowledge with others. Working closely with our Pueblo Advisory Group and other American Indian communities, the Center seeks to broaden and enrich the perspectives gained through archaeological research, incorporate indigenous voices into its education curriculum, and initiate projects that are culturally relevant and directly benefit American Indian communities in the Southwest.

We strive to work in partnership with families and the community to provide support in developing goals and objectives that meet their family needs and adhere to a delivery of service model that includes the Strengthening Families Framework and Family Development model.

The Piñon Project community goals include increasing family stability and self-sufficiency, Early Childhood Education, parent education and support, youth development, community capacity and access to health care. Programs that support these goals include an Early Learning Center, early childhood education and parenting programs, youth services programs (Mentoring and Restorative Justice), Emergency Assistance Coalition (homelessness prevention), Access to Health programs (CHP+ and Medicaid enrollment) and Family Programs (Successful Families).

Tired of Renting? We can help.

It might feel like renting is the only option, but that’s not true! You can become a homeowner in beautiful southwest Colorado and we have the tools and resources to help you achieve your dream. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or have already owned a home, we can help. All you have to do is take the first step. From start to finish, we’re with you every step of the way.

HomesFund will work with you so that you have the information you need to make good decisions as you prepare for purchase, find a home that fits your needs, and make a wise and affordable investment in your future.

MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE

Buying a home is expensive when you live in gorgeous Colorado, but we have financing tools to help you achieve your dream.

Shared Appreciation Loans

A shared appreciation loan helps you bridge the gap between what you can afford and the purchase price of a home. These loans require no monthly payments. Rather when you sell or repay the loan, the HomesFund receives a portion of the appreciation.

Building Wealth Loans

If you do not have a 20% down payment, you will likely be required to pay costly mortgage insurance in addition to your monthly mortgage loan payments. With a Building Wealth Loan, we eliminate the need for mortgage insurance and we can save you hundreds of dollars each month.
