ARTES DEL VALLE
The Artes office is located in in Alamosa County, where among Hispanic female-headed households the median income is $7,390, in comparison with $30,140 for the state and $17,533 for the San Luis Valley in general. Women have trouble finding jobs except farm work or entry level jobs in the fast food industry. Many work part-time, and can be greatly helped by supplemental income from craft production. The area's assets include Adams State College in Alamosa, a two-year vocational school, and visitors attracted by ski-ing and fishing in nearby mountains.
