METRO DENVER

Since its inception in 2005, A Little Help has grown in a grassroots way with the help of great neighbors volunteering to lead the charge in their communities.  A Little Help’s South Central Neighborhood, then known as Washington Park Cares, was our founding site. However, with the help of committed neighbors, staff, and board members, we've been able to support more people throughout Metro Denver and beyond.

 

JANUARY HIGHLIGHTS

Many thanks to our supporters!! This year, through Colorado Gives Day, end-of-year-giving, grants and other contributions, we raised over $230,000 to support our mission of connecting neighbors and helping seniors thrive in their own homes. 

Activities:  Our support group on loss, grief, and caregiving meets January 14 at 1:00. Click on the Newsletter below for more details.  Also, the book club will meet January 25 at 11:00.  This month's book is "Becoming" by Michelle Obama. See the Newsletter for more details.
