Check out Executive Director, Karie Erickson's, most recent article in the Douglas County News-Press, where she discusses the transformation of Neighbor Network from a once small organization to the county's only nonprofit Aging Resource Center. "Just knowing there is a place to reach out to has made a significant impact on people's confidence level to remain in their homes and remain independent. Services help fill in the gaps many seniors are facing, and it's a peace of mind to know you have an available resource that specializes in senior services." Read the full article here.
It is a great honor to be recognized by the Denver Senior Coalitions and the Douglas County Senior Foundation for our work in the community. Last week Neighbor Network was awarded two grants that will be used towards our senior service programs. The support of these well-established and respected organizations means so much to us. Thank you for your support!
Wow! We are blown away by all the love and support on Colorado Gives Day. Through your donations, we raised $2,500 through our online campaign, with an additional $1,900 given offline, for a total of $4,400!
These generous donations will go towards the cost of our programs including Transportation, Chore & Handyman, Homemaker, and Senior Companion. All towards the goal of helping seniors stay independent! We are blessed to have such dedicated supporters. Our services are not possible without you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
If you missed the chance to give on December 5th, you can still donate through our Giving Page. Thank you!
Douglas County older adults are discovering friendships and regaining their independence through Neighbor Network’s Companion Program. Last year, our volunteers provided over 700 hours of companionship services to seniors at risk of social isolation. Although the Companion Program is one of our most popular, it receives zero grant funds to keep it operating, just donations and kindness. In order to secure funding for the next year of the program, we are launching our first ever peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. Peer-to-peer fundraising is a more intimate way to raise money, where volunteers sign up to host a small event with their friends and family, taking a few minutes to share their experience and passion for the cause.
If you want to spread the word about our Companion Program and help us reach our fundraising goal for another year of senior companionship, sign up to become a Volunteer-Fundraiser by visiting
and click "Create A Team" then create a secure account. We'll reach out to you to make sure you have all the tools and support you need. Set your own goal, get creative, have fun! It's easy and makes a HUGE impact on our Douglas County seniors!
