Partnerships

Support A Little Help in our mission of connecting neighbors to help seniors thrive by becoming a Community Partner.

The below partnerships enable A Little Help to maintain high-quality service provision while growing our impact.

A Little Help's service delivery model is based on effective collaborations with these community volunteers, as well as local and national businesses, organizations, and grantmakers. In addition to the nearly 700 resident volunteers and 120 vendors who provide direct services to our elders, A Little Help works with a variety of partners in educational institutions from Graland Country Day School, Kent Denver School, St. Anne’s Episcopal School, and Denver South High School to the University of Denver and the Anschutz Medical campus; in civic agencies like the City and County of Denver, the City of Lakewood, Jefferson County, and various commissions on aging; in church groups from evangelical to Catholic to mainstream Protestant churches and youth groups; and in national organizations with a strong local presence like AARP Colorado, Whole Foods Market, Colorado Visiting Nurses Association, Easter Seals Colorado, Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA.

Partnering with other nonprofits and government organizations that work with vulnerable senior populations enables us to identify, reach out to, and navigate with these isolated seniors. We provide a warm hand-off to other agencies including DRMAC (Carol Buchanan), AARP Colorado (Roberto Rey), Volunteers of America (Dale Elliott), Seniors Resource Center (Hank Braaksma), Jewish Family Services (Chandra Matthews), the City of Denver (Kristina Evanoff), and DRCOG (Jayla Sanchez-Warren), to help the elders get connected to other services and programs.

We also collaborate with complementary organizations.

Because we fill a specific gap that is not being filled by similar organizations, we have differentiated our value proposition and are not duplicating services. As 'a little help,' we partner with organizations and businesses that provide more help, including home health organizations and assisted living facilities, when our members need a higher level of care and help our seniors to navigate that system of care. We fill a gap in services for seniors with middle class expectations; while many are now experiencing a lower socioeconomic status because they've outlived their pensions, the majority of our members lived most of their lives in the middle class and do not want to receive government entitlements or charity.

We value collaboration and work well with our partners in the community to provide holistic care and wrap-around services for our members. Some of the business categories that are included in our Partnership Program include:

  • Attorneys
  • Alzheimer Centers                                                                                                                          
  • Assisted Living
