Helping America's Most Vulnerable


Volunteers of America holds several events in Southwest Colorado throughout the year. All proceeds from events in Southwest Colorado go directly to local Volunteers of America programs. For more information on an event please contact us at 970-259-1021 or

Wear the Love

Wear the Love is an annual event featuring local art that goes directly to supporting the women and children served by the Volunteers of America Southwest Safehouse and Durango Community Shelter. This year's Wear the Love pendant is designed and hand crafted by local artist Anne Campbell and features a Garnet, a stone of regeneration and energizing. Get your pendent or gift one for a donation of $65 and show your support for women and children in need.

The 2016 event kick off in Durango will be April 7 at Taylor Raymond Gallery, 835 Main Ave, Durango, Colorado 81301, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Enjoy wine donated by Star Liquors and appetizers donated by Hot Tomatoes. Click here for more info and to RSVP.

If you can't make it to the kick off or to Taylor Raymond Gallery to purchase this year's gorgeous pendent, you can still get yours by calling Volunteers of America offices in Durango at 970-259-1021.
