Columbine Community Village Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Columbine Community Village empowers older adults to remain in their own
homes during the mature years of life, supported by a network of
neighbors helping neighbors. We value the importance of older adults to
our society, encourage intergenerational connection, and mobilize our community to care for one another.

A nonprofit corporation, Columbine Community Village is supported by member dues, individual and business contributions, and the generous volunteer efforts of neighbors helping neighbors. These vital resources provide the tools that help our community’s older adults to continue living in their own homes with greater independence and dignity.
A single phone call can arrange for a volunteer to give the member a ride to the grocery store, doctor's office, or for visits or errands.
Skilled volunteers are available for minor household repairs, help with computers, occasional chores, and the like.
For a contractor or paid service provider, members call a single phone number for a vendor whose background and qualifications have been checked out.
Social and educational programs connect members with neighbors and friends, offering opportunities for recreation and stimulation.
Community interaction and personal growth are encouraged through the many activities of Columbine Community Village.
Columbine Community Village is able to fulfill our mission through caring people who:
Join – Open to all adults over 55 within our membership area, in suburban South Jefferson County (and the Columbine area of western Arapahoe County).
Get Involved – Adults of any age including Village members can be volunteers. Individual and business contributions are welcome. These gifts allow us to keep member dues at a reasonable level, and help sustain Columbine Community Village.
