On the Western Slope there are programs for the elderly in Montrose and a safehouse and homeless shelter in Durango.

Mission Statement
Volunteers of America seeks to identify and serve the basic needs of the most vulnerable populations in the community.

Goals
Identify Colorado’s most vulnerable populations and provide services to help them achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency. Fill the existing service gaps for Colorado’s less fortunate, including the homeless, hungry, low-income individuals and families, homebound seniors, etc.

Forge strategic community partnerships with corporations, fellow non-profits, churches and service groups to provide comprehensive services to Colorado’s most vulnerable populations. Provide meaningful volunteer opportunities to all community members, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, political or religious affiliation.
