Whether it be COVID, cancer, Parkinson's or any kind of grief and loss, Pathfinders is always here to serve this community.  We provide free/low-cost mental health support, homemade meals for those too ill to cook for themselves, and we are working with schools from Basalt to Parachute to provide support for children dealing with grief and loss and illness.  When people are dealing with the very hard issues around health and loss, Pathfinders is there!
 
 
 
 
Our mission is to provide well-trained, court-appointed volunteer advocates to abused and neglected children in Colorado’s 9th Judicial District. The program’s vision is to support a safe, permanent, nurturing home for every child it serves: We are striving to protect every child's right to grow up in the embrace of a loving family.  Help us reach every child.  Volunteer.  Advocate.  Donate.  Next volunteer training starts in June.  Contact Taryn@casaoftheninth.org

CKF is committed to raising awareness about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation in hopes of registering more people as organ donors and eliminating the wait for those in need of a lifesaving transplant. Transplant surgeries have come to a near standstill in the U.S. as hospitals shift their collective focus to deal with COVID-19 cases. More than 112,000 Americans are currently waiting to receive an organ transplant. You can help by contributing to our efforts. To donate or volunteer: info@chrisklugf

 

Since 1991, AYC has been serving youth in 4th through 12th grade, from Aspen to Parachute, with free out-of-school time programs. We serve youth in Pitkin, Eagle, and Garfield counties, year-round, free of charge through generous individual donations, grants, and events. Please consider donating to allow us to continue providing free programs as our community gets back to work.
