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!

The City of Lovelands Snow Squad volunteer program assists residents who are physically unable to shovel and cannot afford to hire a service.

Making a difference is easy. Each volunteer indicates the number of residents they would like to help, and is matched with residents in their area for the entire season.
When it snows 2 inches or more, volunteers shovel the sidewalks and a path to the door for their assigned residents within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall.

Interested volunteers should email Hollie.Hill@cityofloveland.org to receive an application with required background check.

The Murphy Center for Hope and Homeless Gear are looking for community members interested in becoming Housing First Advocates for a brand new program, designed to help people experiencing homelessness in our community find affordable housing and gain self-sufficiency.

Volunteer teams of two will work with our Housing First Initiative Director, in conjunction with the person in need of housing, to create an "Action Plan." Volunteers will help with a "Hands-on Housing Search"- including internet searches for available housing, phone calls to potential landlords, assistance in obtaining necessary documents, and will provide encouragement and support to the person as they navigate the path to self-sufficiency.

Comprehensive training is provided, and Volunteers are backed-up at all times by the Housing First Initiative Director. Hours are flexible and would be approximately 1-5 hour per week, depending on your schedule.

This is a wonderful opportunity to provide tangible, effective assistance to some our community's most vulnerable members, with long-lasting results. If you would like to be a part of this exciting and innovative project, please contact us. Training begins in mid-July, with additional opportunities throughout the year.

The Loveland Housing Authority needs volunteers to help provide front office coverage.
