Pat Craig is director of the Northwest Colorado Legal Services Project, which serves 11 counties including Summit, Clear Creek, Gunnison and Pitkin. Craig said that over 900 people sought help from CLS in the first half of this year alone, and the number of people seeking help rises and falls along with the economy.

“It might be surprising to know how many people are struggling to get by up here in the mountains,” Craig said.
