Pueblo Community Health Center
Located in Southeastern Colorado, Pueblo is a multicultural community located 100 miles south of Denver along the I-25 corridor. Downtown Pueblo features a mile long Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, galleries, and museums. The city attracts locals and visitors for their cultural events, such as the popular Annual Chile and Frijoles Festival celebrating Pueblo’s famous green chiles. The Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center offers unique experiences and boasts an award winning children's museum along with a variety of art forms and instruction. Capping off each summer in August, Pueblo hosts the annual Colorado State Fair, attracting headline performers and visitors from around the state and southwest region.
Like many other Colorado cities, Pueblo is a short drive from world class skiing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Kayakers flock to the Whitewater Park on the Arkansas River, and Lake Pueblo State Park offers a wide variety of water sporting activities.
A population of over 150,000 residents call Pueblo home. These proud residents saw their Colorado State University-Pueblo Thunderwolves win the 2014 NCAA Division II Football National Champion. Pueblo also proudly headquarters the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR).

It is an independent, nonprofit organization managed by a community Board of Directors, with twelve locations throughout Pueblo and Huerfano counties.
