Ark Valley Helping Hands is a neighbor-to-neighbor, non-profit, volunteer-based organization right here in Chaffee County! We support the elders in our community in remaining in their homes and remaining an integrated part of our communities.

Ark Valley Helping Hands volunteers work directly with elder members to give them just that... a hand to help enhance their lives and open up new possibilities for thriving rather than just surviving. We offer social opportunities as well as assistance with tasks that have become a little out of their reach.

Being A Volunteer:

Do you have an hour or two you could spare to experience a great sense of contribution and satisfaction from assisting an elder in your community? Our volunteers consistently say that they receive more than they give.

It is so easy to volunteer! You volunteer when you have the time. There is no set schedule, you pick the day and the time each time you volunteer.

All volunteers receive emails from our office that explain a certain member's request for a little help. If you are available, you answer the email and if someone else has not grabbed the opportunity first, you will be connected with the member to confirm the time to get together.

Being A Member:

Here is what you can be assured of if you join as a member:

  • All volunteers are vetted, trained and covered by insurance that protects them and you during Ark Valley Helping Hands’ assistance.
  • What you will receive in assistance is worth so much more than the $20.00 per month that it costs to join. We have financial assistance for members that cannot afford the full fee and operate on a pay-what-you-can basis.
  • You will meet new people and make new friends.
  • You will have an opportunity to be more connected with your community.
  • You will have an initial welcome meeting where a senior volunteer will work with you to figure out what you need to make sure your life is easier and more fulfilling.

Welcome to you! You will be glad you decided to join!
