Our programs depend on the generosity and capabilities of our volunteers.
Over the past two years over 70 volunteers have made our Food Program services possible (see below). If you are interested in helping with our free food program –packing boxes of food or supporting pick-up let us know.
Many volunteers have supported the start-up of our assisted living community, from garage sale volunteers, to program committee staff. As we start-up residence we will seek volunteers for activities for residents and other adults including areas such as arts and crafts, gardening, and computer and technology support. We welcome your ideas and interest.
If you are interested in volunteering please call our office at 719-742-3510, or send us an email describing your interest at email@example.com
Please note that Colorado and Federal regulations require that all staff and volunteers who provide services in an assisted living residence obtain 2 Covid-19 vaccinations, and agree to daily monitoring and regular testing. We work with older adults who are at high-risk of mortality or prolonged illness if they catch the Covid-19 virus. It is our collective responsibility to do all we can to prevent this from occurring.
We collaborate to offer a wide-range of programs and services for older residents in Huerfano County. We work with other nonprofit organizations, governmental entities, and individuals.
For example, collaborators in our Living Life Well Series of program include La Veta Fitness, Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center, Sangre de Cristo Community Care, and many individuals.
We are grateful to organizations and businesses that collaborated with us to make our Food Programs possible for the community. They include the Area Agency on Aging (SCCOG), Care and Share Food Bank, Cuchara Valley Christian Community Services (CVCCS), Charlies’ Market, La Veta Fire and EMS, XIT Ranch, Town of La Veta, Chaé Organics, and Code of the West.
If you currently work with older adults or have a passion for such work and seek to provide programming with us, please contact us.
