To provide services to Teller County senior citizens to enable them to live full, active, and independent lives.
The Teller Senior Coalition was founded in 1996 by Vivian Giesler, Roberta Winn, and other community leaders when the Teller County decided that senior services be outsourced.
Over the last 20 years we have assisted seniors by providing frozen and shelf stable meals to those that are home bound, transportation to doctor appointments and grocery shopping, home safety repairs and homemaker services --- all these services are provided without a fee as most of our clients are low income. We request a donation but no one is ever denied any service, due to an inability to pay. The senior population is growing. The first of the baby boomer generation turned 65 in 2011 and will continue to grow. We are proud that the services we provide helps our senior population remain in their homes. By providing nutritious meals, transportation to both medical appointments and social activities, offering in-home respite care and homemaking services, our seniors are able to live full and independent lives. Since then, TSC has continued to provide essential services to Teller County seniors and is currently the primary provider of transportation in Teller County.

Thank you in advance for your support of our wonderful seniors.
Each year hundreds of thousands of older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. Many victims are people who are older, frail, and vulnerable and cannot help themselves and depend on others to meet their most basic needs. Abusers of older adults are both women and men, and may be family members, friends, or “trusted others.” Read more.
AARP Foundation ElderWatch Colorado is a program with the Colorado Attorney General and AARP Foundation whose mission is to ensure that no older adults are left to suffer, alone and in silence, at the hands of those who exploit them. The program fights the financial exploitation of older Coloradans through education and outreach, data collection, and the providing of assistance. Learn more.
