How We Help

A Little Help is a non-profit that relies on neighbors of all ages to give their time and passion to connect and help the older adults in their community.

A Little Help volunteers offer 'a little help' by assisting with tasks around the home and yard or by reaching out for social calls and visits. The reciprocal nature of this connection is exemplified when our older neighbors provide mentorship and wisdom to younger members of A Little Help. Below is a listing of all that our volunteers can do for older adults looking for just a little help.  

The Value in Joining A Little Help

A Little Help connects our older adults to volunteers of all ages to make it possible for them to age well and to overcome barriers to living independently in their own homes. This can help avoid or delay the financial burden of moving to outside facilities. Click here to learn more about how you can save by joining A Little Help.

For those requests that may go beyond our volunteers' capacity, we connect older adults to other resources such as AgeWise Colorado. AgeWise Colorado connects adult children and older adults to the vetted resources, information, and education needed to age well and wisely in Colorado. Check them out here: agewisecolorado.org. Find their upcoming webinars here. https://agewisecolorado.org/events and recorded ones here: Webinar Recordings Archives - AgeWise Colorado.

Yard Work

A Little Help enables older adults to continue taking pride in their homes and yards.  Many chores become difficult with age, illness, or injury and volunteers are there to offer help with yard work, organizing, light cleaning, and handy help tasks. 

Technology Help

Our tech-savvy volunteers may help with things like smartphone navigation, printer troubleshooting, creating files and folders on your computer, scanning and photo storage, connecting virtually, using email, and other general tech support.

Through our partnership with DOROT we are able to offer another level of technology help to our older adult members who are late tech adopters.  Volunteers who are interested in providing a deeper level of technology help to our members are trained and provided technology guides from Dorot. 

Transportation

Mobility and access are vital for older adults to maintain good health and a high quality of life. A Little Help coordinates round-trip rides with volunteering neighbors to get older adults where they need to go.

Errands

A Little Help volunteers are able to go to the post office, pharmacy, or grocery store on behalf of an A Little Help member.


 

Care calls, Friendly Visits, and Warm Welcomes

Care calls and friendly visits are important points of connection. Our volunteers help their neighbors to engage in meaningful conversations by phone and through in-person social interaction.

Snow Removal

We connect neighbors for the shoveling season to support our older adults to keep their walkways safe through our SnowMatch program.

Intergenerational Activities

Membership in A Little Help includes a variety of social and educational activities. All members are encouraged to attend these community-building events.
