Neighbor Network has provided volunteer services to older people in Douglas County since 1998. Throughout the years, we have grown to serve more seniors and create additional programs as the needs of our residents change. What started as a small transportation program with two clients and three volunteers has grown into an organization that provides wrap-around services to over 420 Neighbor Network members and brings aging education and resource navigation to the whole Douglas County community.
To capture the essence of all that we do, Neighbor Network has changed its name to Aging Resources of Douglas County. In addition to our Volunteer Services program (which we will continue to refer to as Neighbor Network), Aging Resources also offers Resource Navigation and Education & Outreach programs. Resource Navigation services connect people to important agencies, tools and information in Douglas County. We accomplish this through the Aging Resources information call center, care guidance services, and resource guide. The Education and Outreach program includes rural outreach events, intergenerational activities, aging education, and other ways of involving the whole community in creating a more age-friendly future for Douglas County.
In addition to changing our name, Aging Resources has split from our fiscal sponsor, the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC), and gained an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization status.
As we enter 2019, we are excited for what the future holds. We have many exciting projects and events on the horizon. Thank you to all the supporters who have helped get to this point. We could not have done it without you!
