The purpose of the Senior Companion Program is to engage low-income older adults, 55 years and better, in volunteer service to meet critical community needs. Our goal is to provide a high-quality volunteer experience that enriches the lives of the older adults serving and those they serve. Senior Companions provide supportive, individualized services to other older adults. We strive to improve the quality of life for at-risk older adults and help them maintain their dignity and independence. This program serves five counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson.
The Senior Companion Program is part of AmeriCorps Seniors sponsored by the AmeriCorps.
