Serving Seniors in Teller County since 1996!

 

Our mission is to provide services to Teller County senior citizens to enable them to live full, active, and independent lives. 

The Teller Senior Coalition is a small nonprofit that assists senior citizens living in Teller County, Colorado. 

Unlike any other organization in Teller County, we offer free transportation and respite care to those aged sixty and over.  Over the last 18 years we have also assisted seniors by providing shelf stable meals to those that are homebound, help with utility payments, and home safety repairs --- all these services are provided without a fee as most of our clients are low income.  We request a donation but no one is ever denied any service. 

We are also working with the VA to transport our veterans,  regardless of age, to regional military medical facilities.  This is a new endeavor that is expected to grow as our veteran population increases.

The senior population is growing.  The first of the baby boomer generation turned 65 in 2011 and they make up 25% of the total US population.  We are proud that the services we provide helps our senior population remain in their homes.  By providing nutritious meals, transportation to both medical appointments and social activities, and offering in-home respite care our seniors are able to live full and independent lives.

Got a 4 Wheel Drive vehicle in good condition?  Would you consider donating it to TSC to help us deliver more meals to homebound seniors? Our Rural Area Meal Program offers so much more than just a meal! Seniors benefit from face-to-face contact with people who deliver meals, resulting in diminshed feelings of loneliness, a greater sense of safety, and worry less about remaining in their own homes.  Click HERE to read more.
