Park County Senior Coalition

Many seniors living in our rural area need only a little assistance in order to remain independent and in their homes. A lack of long-term care facilities in our county forces those who are unable to live independently to leave the county, their home, and their community.

Mission Statement

The mission of Park County Senior Coalition is to assist residents 60 and over to maintain the highest quality of life by remaining in their homes as long as they wish and are able.

Organization History

Park County Senior Coalition was established in 1977 as a social organization for Fairplay seniors. From the beginning, it was apparent that access to services was a problem for area seniors due to the great distances when traveling in or out of the county, weather and road conditions, and some members being unable or unwilling to drive. In 1977, Park County received its first transportation grant, purchased a 14 passenger van, and provided transportation to seniors in the Fairplay area. Transportation moved to the forefront, the organization became focused on service rather than social activities, service expanded throughout the county and, in 1984, the organization incorporated as Park County Senior Coalition, Inc., a private non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of Park County seniors.

Through the years, additional programs were added. When possible, Park County Senior Coalition provided referrals and collaborated with other agencies to provide service rather than duplicating those services.

Testimonials

People with chronic or acute medical conditions often have to depend on the kindness of others to help with basic tasks. But people have their own lives and responsibilities and cannot always be available to assist. Last week I had an important doctor's appointment in Frisco, and did not feel well enough to drive. With just one phone call to the Senior Coalition, I was set up with a volunteer driver who drove me from my door to the doctor's office, waited through the appointment, then took me to pick up my prescription before returning me home.
He did all of this cheerfully and would accept no money from me.
So thank you ....for your remarkable service to a stranger in need. I am truly grateful. I hope I don't need you again but if I do, I'm glad to know you are there. - K. O
