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.

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

We offer social opportunities and key services through approximately 100 vetted volunteers.

Being A Volunteer is Awesome!

Do you have a few hours to spare? Volunteering with our organization provides a great way to connect and give back to our older population. Our volunteers consistently say they receive more than they give.

It is quite easy to volunteer! There is no set schedule. You pick a request that best works with your schedule. 

All volunteers receive regular emails from our office that include a current list of member requests. If you are available, select the request and then connect with the member to confirm the best time to assist.

Membership Perks: 

  • All volunteers are vetted, trained and covered by insurance that protects them and you during Ark Valley Helping Hands’ assistance.
  • A fee is not required. Rather, an applicant can make a donation if he/she feels so included.
  • Meet new people and make new friends.
  • Opportunity to be more connected with your community.
  • Receive an initial welcome meeting where we work with you to figure out what you need to make sure your day-to-day is easier and more fulfilling.

If you would like to become a volunteer or a member, call us at (719) 530-1198.
