Our mission is to promote the general well-being of senior and disabled citizens in Teller and adjacent counties by providing social interaction, mental stimulation, healthful and recreational activities and education on topics of interest to members. Funds from the Home Tour will insure the continuation of these activities.
Using our eight vehicles, we provide door to door transportation which means we pick up seniors at their residence and take them to essential services including doctors’ appointments and shopping for food and medicine. In 2019 we also provided 8,853 meals to homebound seniors who have difficulty obtaining sufficient nutrition. Home Tour funds help us maintain our mission.
Funds will go directly towards our largest project to date, Trailhead Townhomes. Trailhead Townhomes is an 18-unit neighborhood build located in Woodland Park. We want to make these homes accessible to our community’s workforce so teachers, small-business owners, city employees and others vital to the success of our community are able to find attainable housing.
The primary mission of our organization is to bring the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra to Woodland Park on July 5th for an admission-free concert. The 2020 concert was canceled due to the pandemic, but we hope to make the 2021 concert bigger and better. Funds from the Home Tour will help us attain this goal.
Our mission is to deliver high quality, live theater productions for the public. Children between the ages of 8-18 are invited to summer camps and workshops learning dance, music and acting. The camp is culminated with a live theater performance open to the public. Scholarships are offered to those children who wish to participate, but cannot afford camp fees. Proceeds from the Home Tour will help defray some of these costs.
