Delta County Branch

A Little Help in Delta County is our rural effort to serve elders and their neighbors in Delta County. We launched our services in North Fork Valley, specifically Paonia in Summer 2016 and continue to recruit new volunteers and senior members throughout the Valley and County.

Our current Site Team in North Fork Valley is composed of a team of neighbors who are enthusiastic about our mission and who plant seeds among neighbors and community organizations to serve their elders.  Site Teams help us identify and capitalize on the unique strengths, capacities, and identities of each neighborhood responding to each area's complexities to be the most effective organization for each situation. The Salida Site Team has also helped us to tailor and increase services and intergenerational programming in the area. Access to resources is increasing as our geographical footprint and penetration are.If you would like to get involved in this effort, please contact the office at 970-527-3482 or office@alittlehelp.org.
