A Little Help is a grassroots non-profit organization whose mission is connecting neighbors to help seniors thrive! This is our kickoff event, launching A Little Help in Northern Colorado, and we are excited to be working with United Way Make a Difference Day.

For this event, volunteers of all ages will meet at Edora Park, near the tennis courts at the SW entrance, off E. Stuart St. Registration, coffee and donuts begin at 8:00am on Saturday, October 20th. After introductions, including a Mayoral Proclamation, we will be divided into teams. Each team will be given the name/addresses of home owners requesting assistance with yard clean up, raking, and/or outside window washing (first floor). Work should be completed by 12:00pm.

At noon, all participants are invited to join the A Little Help kickoff party at Odell Brewing Company (800 East Lincoln Ave., Fort Collins, CO 80524) for food, drinks, music and fun!

Aging Clinic of the Rockies

Senior Peer Counseling

The Aging Clinic of the Rockies' Senior Peer Counseling program seeks to help older adults in Larimer County by connecting them with trained paraprofessionals, who are also seniors. As older adults themselves, peer counselors are often able to understand and connect with clients? experiences in unique and meaningful ways.

Although there are many positive aspects of aging, there can also be common difficulties including sadness, worry, loneliness, physical illness and disability, cognitive decline, and grief and loss. Peer counseling can often improve the quality of life and well-being of older adults through social connection, emotional support, and companionship. Senior peer counselors are warm, respectful, and kind, men and women over the age of 60, who trained and supervised by mental health professionals.

If you are interested in getting more informatiln about volunteering as a peer counselor, please call Aging Clinic of the Rockies at (970) 491-6795!
