Ark Valley Helping Hands is a volunteer organization in Chaffee County that helps older adults age in place and remain connected to the community.

Our aim is to provide social connection and peace of mind to older adults in Chaffee County. We help them meet basic needs, combat loneliness and help to create safer home environments. 

We offer key services and social connection through our dedicated team of vetted volunteers. 

To stay true to our mission while continuing to expand our ability to serve older adults here in Chaffee, the Board of Directors is actively working through the process of folding Ark Valley Helping Hands under Chaffee County Public Health. This structural change will positively streamline our resources as we focus on our mission. We are excited about the organization's direction. 


Being A Volunteer is Rewarding and Engaging

Volunteering for Ark Valley Helping Hands provides a meaningful and practical way to connect and give back to Chaffee County's aging community. 

There is no set schedule, just a minimum requirement to fulfill 6 requests per year.
