Grassroots Beginnings

Since its inception, A Little Help has grown in a grassroots way with the help of great neighbors volunteering to lead the charge in their communities.  Our lean, efficient staff supports our volunteers and community efforts as we grow organically block by block. A Little Help’s South Central Site was our initial founding site, then known as Washington Park Cares. With the help of committed neighbors and board members, we’ve be able to impact more elders throughout Metro Denver and beyond by growing in geographic Sites. For example, A Little Help’s Northeast Denver Site launched in winter 2013 and is our organic growth effort into a community that has come to us to coordinate a little help for their senior neighbors. We’re working with a Site Team of dedicated volunteers who want to see the older adults on their own blocks and beyond to thrive in Park Hill, Mayfair, Montclair, Crestmoor, Hale, Lowry, and Hilltop. This community movement helps us honor the elders of Northeast Denver.

We also have Site Teams in Northwest, South Central, and Southeast Denver. If you would like to help us grow in your neighborhood in one of these current Sites or beyond, please let us know in the office!  Site Teams help us grow in new neighborhoods and grow deeper into existing communities within our network. Help us help our communities!

Ongoing Activities

picnicIn the summer, we host summer picnics in neighbors’ yards or community parks at 5:30 p.m. through September. Please call the office to RSVP for location details (720-242-9032).

We had several teams of volunteers working on Service Saturday! at homes in each of our Sites this spring! We would love to serve more seniors at this big yard clean up event in the fall- let us know if you or a neighbor need your leaves raked, windows washed, or gardens weeded! We can always use more volunteers for this event too, let us know if you’re ready to get your hands dirty!
