The Mission of the Friends of Mueller State Park is to raise funds to support Park projects, especially those related to education and enhancing visitor experience; and to contribute to the preservation of the Park’s resources, history and culture. Three major, recurring, educational projects for children and families are planned for 2022 which could be funded by proceeds from the Tweeds Holiday Home Tour. Our goal is to reach approximately 600 children from Teller County and from El Paso County schools in Districts 2 and 11.
Teller Senior Coalition (TSC) provides a Home Delivered Meal program that delivers food to homebound seniors (age 60 or over). Although partially funded by Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments, TSC must raise over $7,600 for the 2021-22 fiscal year to cover the shortfall. TSC also provides door to door transportation by picking up seniors at their residence and take them to essential services including doctors’ appointments, grocery shopping and prescription pickup. Using their eight vehicles, multiple services were provided to over 1,000 seniors in 2020, a 25% increase over 2019.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity of Teller County brings people together to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Funds will go directly towards our largest project to date, Trailhead Townhomes, 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 can find attainable housing.
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 Tweeds Holiday Home Tour will help defray some of these costs.
