Family and Elders Program Application

If you have questions about this form please contact us at 303-830-1176 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.

We are required to run CBI background checks on all volunteers before they can begin visiting elders. You can bring a check for $10.00 to your orientation to cover this cost or make the payment online by going to
