Cibola students create community resources webpage for YUHSD

Three Cibola High School Career & Technical Education students created a community resources webpage on yumaunion.org to aggregate helpful links for families in need.

The concept originally came up as part of a Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Chapter 394 project and was executed by HOSA leaders Abigail Gomez, Ianna Herrera, and Jelissa Mireles.

“While personally understanding the stress of life's ups and downs, we wanted to relieve families in Yuma County by providing access to information that may be needed during difficult times,” said Gomez, who is a sophomore at Cibola. “By having these resources available, it will give visitors to the site peace of mind knowing that the information being shared is credible and confidential.”

The page, which was constructed by the students after undergoing a brief web-content-management tutorial, consists of six focus areas: employment and training, food and clothing assistance, medical and health services, utilities and housing assistance, veteran and military programs, and women and children services. It can be accessed by clicking here or visiting yumaunion.org and clicking the “community” tab near the top of the homepage. 

According to Gomez, the students would like to continue adding resources to the page as well as maintain it over their time at Cibola.
