Community Service

Our values of integrity, honesty, balance, and community service go far beyond how we conduct our business – they extend to how we interact within our neighborhoods, our schools, our town, the environment, and the world in which we live, work and play. Tafoya Barrett and Associates PC employees provide  their time, talent, and passion in supporting many Southwest Colorado and Global organizations.

Tafoya Barrett and Associates PC participates in firm-wide community service projects throughout the year. These volunteer projects create a positive teambuilding experience and make a positive impact on our community.

To support our team members, Tafoya Barrett and Associates PC provides 52 hours annually of paid community service time and will match up to $500 of an employees’ financial contributions to organizations that are near and dear to their hearts. Additionally, Tafoya Barrett and Associates PC pays dues for employees who choose to participate in professional and civic service organizations. We are proud of our employees who generously support our community.
