Other Programs

Helping aging adults live healthier and more active lives.

We provide a range of services for the aging adult population in Huerfano County. Nearly 1/3 of the County’s residents are over 65, and within a few years estimates are that 50% of our residents will be over the age of 60. Remaining healthy and active is vital to their ability to enjoy life in the Spanish Peaks Country and contribute to the community. Some of our programs provide goods and services, while others are informational, educational and inter-active.

Food Programs

Since April 2020, La Veta Village has provided two food programs for older adults and families in need in the La Veta area. We provide grocery shopping and delivery for older or homebound adults. Since inception we’ve made over 500 deliveries to over 30 households.
 

In coordination with the Area Agency on Aging we’ve provided free food boxes to households in need in the La Veta, Cuchara, and Navajo Ranch areas of Huerfano County. Every month we provide free food box pick-up, serving 145 households, and over 300 individuals. Since inception we’ve provided the equivalent of more than 80,000 meals to our neighbors.
 

Community support makes this possible – both the generous support of individuals and foundations, and over 70 volunteers to date.

We plan to continue this program as funding allows.

 

If you are in need of one of our food programs, or would like to volunteer, please call our Food Services team at 719-247-1393 or email foodservices@lavetavillage.org.  See the La Veta Public Library Community Calendar or the weekly Bachman Newsletter for updates regarding the timing and location for our free food pick-up program.

Other Programs

In collaboration with other nonprofits and local governmental entities, we plan to identify needs and interest of older adults in the County, and determine how La Veta Village can help meet these needs.
