Background Statement

Aging Resources of Douglas County began in 1998 as Neighbor Network. Transportation was provided to Douglas County seniors through a Rural Colorado Health Association grant. The county's senior population experienced rapid growth during this time, nearly tripling in just a decade. Neighbor Network struggled to keep up with the swelling demand for services under the constraints of a small county program. In 2013, Neighbor Network became a project under the fiscal sponsorship of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC) to obtain nonprofit status and broadened its programming to include Information and Referral, Companionship, Home Help, and Care Management. In 2018, Neighbor Network re-positioned itself as the nonprofit Aging Resource Center for Douglas County, incorporating direct services with navigation and guidance tools to better accommodate the needs of older adults. Aging Resources of Douglas County remains true to its roots as a relationship-based, no-cost organization, providing the best care possible for seniors.
