Our financial assistance outreach provides financial assistance for rent, utilities, transportation, medical, food, and clothing costs.
Meal Monkey provides a healthy sack lunch each Friday to kids 18 and younger. Meals are delivered to Burning Mountain Park in New Castle and the Silt Library and Heron's Nest in Silt.
SENIORS NETWORK LUNCHEON
Each Wednesday at noon we host a networking luncheon for the community to attend and enjoy a meal and presentation.
Our community gardens, located at The River Center and Apple Tree Park, provide fresh produce to families through The River Center and the local Lift-Up pantry. Each location also provides individual community member plots for the season.
Our Angel Tree outreach provides a Christmas gift to children from Silt to Glenwood Springs who are referred to us by local schools or partnering organizations. This is wonderful outreach that gets the entire community involved with donations and volunteering.
SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
School supply lists can be a struggle for families to purchase everything. We provide gift cards to all six local schools to help ensure classrooms have the supplies needed that families are unable to bring in. Individual needs for students for larger items may be requested through school counselors as well.
Our community enrichment classes provide healthy nutrition such as gardening, food preservation, and Cooking Matters classes. We also provide parenting and finance workshops throughout the year as well. These classes are open to anyone and are either free or have a minimal fee, but scholarships are available.
TOTES OF HOPE
Totes of Hope provides a weekly bag of non-perishable food items for kids to take home for the weekend. During the school year food is delivered to four local schools. During the summer months families are able to pick up food at the River Center.
This scholarship is based on the belief of education as the initial foundation to defeat poverty and break systematic barriers. It provides an opportunity for growth in your current career or as a way to enrich your life, your family's life, or your community.
VOLUNTEER NEW CASTLE
Volunteer New Castle supports and encourages volunteering in New Castle. Each year a volunteer, business, and organization of the year are announced during Burning Mountain Days.
