Ark Valley Helping Hands (AVHH) is a trusted volunteer based organization here in Chaffee County that helps older adults with aging in place and staying connected to the community.
Twenty-six percent of Chaffee County’s population is 65 and older. The percentage of Chaffee County residents who are 55-64 years of age is 16.8% (source: U.S. Census Bureau).
Our ongoing services for our members include rides to appointments, prescription pickup, errands, grocery shopping, light cleaning, friendly visits and birthday calls.
With the help of our volunteers, we aim to provide a human connection, peace of mind and an improved quality of life. We step in to meet basic needs, create a safer home environment and combat loneliness.
