The Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon welcomes all residents in the Platte Canyon area of Park County, Colorado (Pine Junction to the top of Kenosha Pass), of any age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other demographic designation to participate.
Membership is free.
The Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon was formed by area citizens interested in improving services to Seniors in the Platte Canyon area of Park County. We are a volunteer run and staffed organization.
The mission of the Seniors Alliance of Platte Canyon is to connect seniors from Pine Junction to Kenosha Pass through advocacy, education, socialization, and local resources.
We believe all seniors are entitled to a quality of life that sustains their health and well-being.
Educational presentations have been suspended until we are able to hold "in-person" meetings at the Crow Hill Fire Station or our Bailey office. Check the calendar for updates.

In the past year, we have provided referrals to seniors looking for medical insurance after retirement, legal counselling, and transportation to medical appointments.
We also advocated on a state and local level for testing and masks for rural Park County.
Last year we successfully advocated for the Widow’s Oil Food Pantry, which had been designated as “non-essential” during the pandemic and cut from a food bank distribution route. The SAPC was able to communicate the need to the provider and food is once again available to the Widow’s Oil food pantry.
