Program Description:

Silver Key is proud to serve thousands of seniors in the Pikes Peak region. We offer a variety of services for area seniors to maintain their independence, safety and quality of life.

We recognize four leaders who have left their mark on Silver Key including, founder Betsey Myers-Burroughs and advocate Clifford King, along with a group of conscientious citizens wishing to improve the quality of life for those in nursing homes.

With the help of these individuals and first Executive Director Mikki Kraushaar, Silver Key was incorporated in 1970 and officially opened its doors thanks to grant monies awarded by the Older Americans Act. Patricia Ellis retired in 2019 after leading the organization for eight years, including the expansion of services facilitated by our move to the South Murray campus.

We remember and celebrate each and every donor, volunteer, partner and advocate in the community who shares our mission to provide seniors with safety, independence and dignity as they move through the aging process.

OUR MISSION is to serve in partnership with our stakeholders to support a healthy quality of life for seniors, allowing them to age safely with dignity and independence.

A Little Help Is A Nonprofit Organization That Connects Neighbors Of All Ages To Enhance Lives And Strengthen Our Communities.

To that end, we help older adults age well in their homes by connecting them to an important resource plentiful in every community: good neighbors.

Many tasks around the house and yard chip away at independence, but through A Little Help, good neighbors can help with transportation, yard work, handiwork, home organization, and social engagement, empowering older adults to thrive where they have lived for decades and put down roots. 

This interaction also creates opportunities for our seniors to share their stories and skills.

For example, while Service Saturday! volunteers are clearing flower beds and cutting down vines, our members enjoy sharing their own gardening tips with young adults and new homeowners. Studies show that living in the comfort of their own homes is the best and most cost-effective choice for most people. Our older members have chosen to stay at home, with a little help from their friends and neighbors.

Program Description:

MCSS is associated with non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. Our mission is to serve the senior citizens of northwest El Paso County.

We were founded by members of the Mountain Community Mennonite Church in 2002. 

The organization has grown since then, and MCSS works with churches and other non-profits in the area to provide transportation and handyman services to our seniors. Our primary goal is to allow Seniors to be independent and continue to enrich our community.

MCSS is staffed by our volunteer drivers and team to support our efforts. Our drivers donate their time and receive mileage reimbursement from MCSS if they desire. Our clients receive transportation services at no cost; however, tax deductible donations which help continue this essential service are appreciated and gratefully accepted. MCSS also receives support from the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging.

Prior to initiation of this service in 2002, there was no organized transportation service available in northwest El Paso County. Without our service, the independence of many seniors could be impacted. It is our desire to ensure these individuals are able to "age in place" and continue to remain independent and part of our community.

The Handyman Services program, which began in 2009, is offered at no charge to our clients. We offer handyman services to seniors who need minor repairs or modifications to their home. The intent is to make their environment "senior friendly" and allow seniors to remain independent and safely "age in place."

Preference and priority in the delivery of our services is always given to seniors with the greatest social and economic need, those who lack other means of transportation, and individuals who are handicapped or homebound. Preference is also given to low-income, minority seniors and seniors residing in rural or geographically isolated areas. Services are provided within our capability and resources to safely transport our clients.

MCSS provides free transportation to senior citizens, aged 60 years and older, who reside in the Tri-Lakes region of North El Paso County, Colorado, including Monument, Palmer Lake and the Woodmoor area.

The Handyman Program offers assistance to our seniors who need common household repairs. We can also install grab bars and ramps as well as repair stairs or other improvements that you may require.

It is our goal to make life easier for the senior citizens of the Tri-Lakes community.
