A Message From Our CEO & Board Chair
As we celebrate 126 years of service to Colorado, we are excited about the future and looking forward to a number of transformational changes as an organization. Today, Volunteers of America Colorado is in the process of revamping and growing our operations to best serve our clients’ needs and to help
Colorado lead in providing much-needed services to the most vulnerable Coloradans.
Construction will soon be completed at a new location in Commerce City that will nearly double our kitchen and food bank capacity. This will help us explore new ways to bring fresh food to those we serve through nutritional services, food delivery programs like Meals on Wheels, and food distribution services. Our administration building will undergo a much-needed renovation that will create new office space as well as a heritage site honoring Colorado’s incredible volunteering spirit and more than a century of goodwill and good work. Through the preparation of this move along with the shift in hybrid work capabilities, Volunteers of America Colorado has invested heavily in the integration of technology to better connect us wherever we are across the state.
Within the next couple of years, we will also likely see a complete revitalization of our Family Motel. These changes will create an updated modern and safe place for dozens of Colorado families experiencing homelessness to stay while Volunteers of America Colorado provides the necessary support and care to help set them up for success. We recognize the significant rise in housing prices due to housing shortages, and the need for affordable housing in Colorado. We are diligently working to provide either a temporary safe home as people transition forward or a more permanent home opportunity for those we serve to provide access to services and community.
Our staff is energized, talented, and hungry for opportunity. We thank you all for your support, compassion, loyalty, partnership, and for your trust in us for the future. Without your partnership, Volunteers of America Colorado would not be able to continue with our mission to serve the most vulnerable in our communities to help them transform their lives. To support over 100,000 Coloradans annually, you need a strong foundation. In this annual report, and with your help, you will see that is what we have built and continue to build upon.
He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, to love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God.
