Many seniors are struggling with the isolating challenges of aging in their own homes and communities, or if someone is not yet a senior, they have loved ones who are facing those challenges. At Cultivate we help those seniors flourish by connecting them—as recipients and contributors—with their surrounding communities Broomfield and Boulder Counties.
We have 6 programs:
Carry-Out Caravan: Due to unique challenges seniors may have trouble getting to the grocery store. Our volunteers provide weekly grocery deliveries, improving seniors’ health and satisfaction.
VetsGo: Many senior vets have difficulty finding transportation to medical appointments. Our volunteers provide escorted rides to and from appointments for veterans and their family who are 60+.
FixIt: Our trained volunteers visit seniors’ homes and perform simple home repairs, wheelchair/walker repairs, and grab bar installations to reduce risks of falling.
SnowBusters: Snow and ice can be dangerous, and managing and removing it can be difficult. Our volunteers shovel snow and remove ice throughout the winter months, preventing falls and HOA fines. This program is only available in Boulder County.
YardBusters: Keeping up with yard maintenance can be difficult, especially if one has mobility issues. During the spring and summer months our volunteers perform basic yard clean up, preventing falls and HOA fines. This program is only available in Boulder County.
AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP: RSVP, the nation’s largest network for volunteers 55+, matches prospective volunteers with meaningful opportunities in their communities. We have been the local RSVP station since 1972.
