Become a Snow Buddy
Keep a limited income senior safe by shoveling his or her sidewalks throughout the snowy seasons. We make a match between a client and a volunteer who live within two miles of each other. Then, when there is a snowfall of 2 or more inches, we ask the volunteers to shovel the sidewalk and walkway for their assigned senior within 24 hours. Find out more details.
 
Be Santa for a Family in Need!

 You can help a family in need for the holidays through our Adopt-a-Family program! You will be able to select the family size you want to adopt, be given their wishlist and then can go buy items for the whole family. This is a great program for families, corporations, groups and indivduals to give back. Sign up by clicking the button below or email Nichole Rogers at nrogers@voacolorado.org.
