Who We Are

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.

MIssion

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.

Advocacy

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.
