Helping America's Most Vulnerable

About The Guild

The Volunteers of America Guild is in its 21st year of “women helping women.” The Guild was founded in celebration of Volunteers of America’s 100th anniversary and is the first Guild ever established to support Volunteers of America.

The purpose of The Guild is to support Volunteers of America Colorado by providing rich and rewarding opportunities for volunteers to help with and raise funds for valued programs, enhance community awareness, and grow community volunteers to give of their time and talents in support of Volunteers of America and Guild programs and events. Since 1996, The Guild has supported the women residing at Volunteers of America’s shelters or in Volunteers of America programs.

Supporting Volunteers of America programs through annual signature fundraising events is one way The Guild supports women in need. These events, including Red Wine and Seafood, offer members a way to bond, exercise their talents, and support the cause.

As a member of The Guild, you will have the opportunity to firsthand use your gifts to enrich the lives of women who are struggling through our many volunteer projects during the year, including Mother’s Day in December and the Back-to-School BBQ.

Mother’s Day in December

This is a special day of pampering for women who don’t get to feel special very often! The day includes hair-styling, manicures, make-up, new clothing, food, and music! A holiday treat for the residents and joy for the volunteers. Join us!

Back-to-School Barbecue

Every year the Guild hosts a Back-to-School event with food, games, and all the supplies that a student would need to go back to school. Providing these supplies to women who are experiencing homelessness relieves a huge burden from their already full plates and the fun event gives them a much needed moment to relax.

MONTHLY DINNERS AT IRVING STREET WOMEN'S RESIDENCE

On the fourth Wednesday of each month, the Guild provides a home-cooked meal for the women living at Volunteers of America's long term women's shelter.

RED WINE & SEAFOOD

A long-standing tradition of enjoying a night of fun, extraordinary wine, and delicious seafood pairings! The event features a silent auction and directly benefits women in our community who are facing homelessness or are financially struggling to get the food, shelter and caring support they need.

sERVICE WITH STYLE

A fundraising luncheon honoring a local philanthropist who has made a difference in our community. The luncheon features an amazing three-course meal, a fashion show, and exclusive pop-up shops from local favorite boutiques.
