In Northern Colorado (Noco), A Little Help is bringing its service and community-building model to older adults and their neighbors throughout the region. Access to resources increases as our geographical footprint and penetration grow.
In partnership with the Larimer County Office on Aging, Partnership for Age Friendly Communities, and an array of organizations addressing the needs of older adults, A Little Help launched in Fort Collins in 2018 to provide resources for our older adults that did not exist in our communities.Our Noco team is composed of enthusiastic neighbors who plant seeds among neighborhoods and community organizations, encouraging them to help serve older adults.
Local site teams in Fort Collins, Berthoud, Loveland and throughout the county identify the unique strengths, capacities, and complexities of each neighborhood, helping them to be the most effective organization for each situation. Our HelpConnect system also provides easy ways for members to request assistance or be referred to professional services for nearly any non-medical need. If you would like to get involved in this effort, please contact A Little Help at 970.412.9396 or email@example.com.
Be sure to read about our new volunteers and interns in Berthoud and Ft. Collins and the great work of our volunteer Marcos Olivern. But we need more volunteers to deliver meals and to help with driving, visiting, and snow shoveling. Get better acquainted with your neighbors, make new friends, and get that warm fuzzy feeling from truly helping someone else! Also, see the story about our new staff member Jake Dresden. He's a long time volunteer who has joined our Denver office.
