If you have questions about this form please contact us at 303-830-9457 or Please understand that the Family & Elders program volunteers are expected to make a one year commitment of service in order to promote meaningful relationships with the elders. This will be explained further in orientation.

While we have a huge need for volunteers in this program, it can sometimes take up to a month for final placement because of coordinating schedules, required paperwork, and other factors specific to each facility. However, once you are placed this becomes a very flexible volunteer position and you can visit according to your schedule.
