Larimer County Branch
A Little Help in Larimer County is bringing our service and community-building model to older adults and their neighbors throughout Larimer County. We are spending the summer building capacity and awareness, and will launch our services in Fort Collins this fall. Join us as we recruit new volunteers and senior members in our target locations.
Our current Branch Team in Fort Collins is composed of a team of neighbors who are enthusiastic about our mission and who plant seeds among neighbors and community organizations to serve older adults. Local Site Teams throughout the County will 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 Larimer Branch Team is helping us to tailor and increase services and intergenerational programming in the area. Access to resources increased as our geographical footprint and penetration grow!
If you would like to get involved in this effort, please contact the office at 970.412.9396 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
