Our mission is to become the most valuable resource for older residents in Douglas County, whether that means assisting with transportation, providing care guidance, or facilitating educational events.
Government Funded Community Resources
Government Funded Community Resources include organizations at the State, County, and Municipal levels which have an aging lens. Examples include the Area Agencies on Aging, State Department of Human Services—Office on Aging, our state Medicaid program—Health Care Policy and Finance Department, County and City Councils on Aging, Public university programs focused on aging, Public Libraries with Aging Services, and many others. Most Coloradans are unaware of the various programs and funds administered by these organizations. We want to be sure you DO know about them.
The State Unit on Aging serves older Coloradans with aging and disability resources, nutrition services, legal assistance, support services, employment services and caregiver support.
