Ark Valley Helping Hands is a trusted partner in Chaffee County that supports older adults, so they can remain independent and in their own homes, as well as connected to their neighbors and our community.

Our target population includes 65 and older, as well as individuals in their 50s and early 60s. 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 menu of services includes transportation to appointments, prescription pickup, running errands, grocery shopping, in-home chores, cleaning gutters, technology assistance, yardwork, snow shoveling, friendly visits and care calls.

With the help of our volunteers, we aim to provide a human connection, peace of mind, and in turn, a better quality of life. Older adults who live alone, or even with a partner/spouse, need an engaging day-to-day to thrive rather than just survive. We step in to create a safer home environment, meet basic needs and combat loneliness.

For more information, contact us at (719) 530-1198 or info@avhelpinghands.org.
 
Office hours are Monday through Friday.
