Ark Valley Helping Hands is a nonprofit in Chaffee County that helps older adults (50+) age in place and remain connected to the community.

We aim to provide a human connection and peace of mind. We step in to meet basic needs, combat loneliness and create safer home environments.

We offer social connections and key services through 116 vetted volunteers (as of June 2022).
