MISSION & VISION

Our  mission at the Senior Assistance Center is to promote the self-sufficiency of all senior citizens in Colorado, to ensure that no senior citizen goes without the necessities of life, including food, shelter, and public service.

SAC HELPS DESPERATE MAN.

I am currently unemployed.  It gets frustrating doing applications online.  It seems that prospective employers do not want to take the time to meet one in person.  I’m getting so tired now, it feels like I have the whole universe on my shoulders.  At times I want to cry, but I don’t.  I don’t like asking for help, but I don’t want to be without utilities for my daughter’s welfare.  I have thought of just running away thinking she might be better off than having me-  a worthless father who can’t provide for her needs.  There are times when I feel like ending my life thinking everyone would be better off without me around.  Not sure what stops me if there is a God, why has he forsaken me.  What have I done so wrong?  Any way, to all involved I thank you and may God bless you.

SAC helped this gentleman pay his utilities bill, helped him with a referral to AARP senior work program, made sure he had a emergency bag of food, and gave him a return bus ticket to the Denver area.   SAC works to help in many ways.

ON SITE FOOD BANK

We have had an onsite Food Bank helping Seniors for over 34 years. Each Thursday between 10:00 AM – 12:00PM the Senior Assistance Center provides a self-select supplemental food bank.

MOBILE FOOD BANK

Our mobile food bank volunteers & staff distribute food to homebound seniors.  We transport food goods weekly to over 125 seniors living in affordable senior housing complexes.  Our goal for 2016 is to expand our service to over 500 seniors weekly.

UTILITIES ASSISTANCE

There are times in everyone’s lives when they are in need of financial assistance.  Due to the rising cost of utilities it is easy to understand how one can fall behind on bills.  If you are a senior that is faced with a disconnection notice or if you have fallen behind on your bill, we can help.

Driven to Donate partners with SAC. Senior Assistance Center offers vehicle donation program

Do you have an old car, truck, or motorcycle that you’re not using any more? By donating your unwanted vehicle to the Senior Assistance Center you will receive a great tax deduction while providing a significant donation in support of our programs.

The Senior Assistance Center is partnering with Driven to Donate, operated by Step 13, a nationally-recognized recovery program in downtown Denver that offers men the opportunity to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction through a program that requires sobriety, work, and accountability. The men at Step 13 help process donated vehicles, providing them with the dignity of work, while they work hard to maximize the value of each donated vehicle.

Donating our vehicle could not be easier. The program includes free towing, and any vehicles, whether they are running or not, are gratefully accepted. You will receive all required forms to claim the tax deduction for the sale price of your vehicle.

You can donate your vehicle online by visiting DriventoDonate.org or by calling 303-296-9020.

Thank you for your support of the Senior Assistance Center.

It wasn’t suppose to be like this!

Testimonail from a worried womanI was just informed that all of the chemotherapy and radiation treatments were not effective and that I still have cancer about a year ago.  I am 76 years old, and spent my life savings to try to save my life when I was diagnosed.  One round of chemotherapy cost me over $5,000 a bag (this was how much I had to pay over and above what Medicare paid), and I required 5 bags!  I went into a short remission, but the cancer has returned.  Chemotherapy made me so weak and frail.  I fell frequently and wound up breaking my hip.  I have been in and out of the hospital this past year so many times I have lost count. My kids are scattered all across the United States, except for my youngest son who is serving our country in Afghanistan.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.  I can only count on my neighbors and friends to help me. I continue to have huge medical deductibles that take my food money, and my Xcel money.  I am so torn.

Humbling and Embarrassing

Testimonial from couple in hard circumstances

My dear husband was laid off of his job. We received unemployment benefits for a time, but they have stopped. We are still a little too young to collect our Social Security. We attend Senior Assistance Center’s food bank every week, and the food and other items really help us stretch a dollar. We really didn’t think we would ever be in this position. We both feel so vulnerable now. Life is kind of like walking a tightrope, and we just hope that nothing happens to make us fall.

I don’t think my husband is ever going to find a job. Not because he’s a bad worker, but because he is bent and stooped due to the hard work he has done all of his life. He looks for jobs endlessly to support us. I think people see his aging body and they don’t want to take a chance on him.
