Please help complete construction of our assisted living residence for the Huerfano County area by contributing to our 2021-22 capital campaign. We must raise $450,000 locally, which is 12% of the project cost. The Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) is providing the remainder of the funding through loans and a grant. We have set fundraising targets, and our progress to date is as follows: 

 

  • Individuals (including memorial donations): Target of $100,000; achieved 87% 

  • Local and Regional Businesses: Target of $100,000; achieved 20%

  • County and Towns: Target of $50,000; achieved 30% (preliminary commitment for 2022 from Huerfano County of an additional 44%)

  • Foundations: Target of $200,000; achieved 85% (additional 10% -- grant proposals outstanding)

We appreciate donations of any size or amount, and also will need in-kind contributions in early 2022, such as arts and crafts supplies. 

 

We have opportunies for businesses or families (including memorial gifts) to sponsor a room or major piece of furniture as follows: 

 

  • $30,000: Dining Room

  • $20,000: Music/Library Room

  • $15,000: Resident Suite

  • $10,000: Office or Patio

  • $  5,000: Entry/Hallway 

  • $  1,000: Furniture items of your selection

Donate through SPBA and contact us to discuss your selection, or call us to discuss your interests. La Veta Village will help businesses promote their donations. Construction of our residence is an Enterprise Zone project, and all donations over $250 are eligible for a Colorado 25% TAX CREDIT.

La Veta Village

  • Our mission is to help Huerfano County aging adults who no longer can live independently, remain as healthy and active as possible in familiar, supportive surroundings in the vibrant community of La Veta.  We strive to help all aging adults in the County live healthier and more active lives.
     

    We deliver our mission through three programs:

    • Family-style assisted living residence and services: We are building an assisted living residence for the County.  When open in early 2022, it will have 16 residents, and employ 10 staff.

    • Food programs: During the pandemic we have provided grocery shopping and delivery service for adults over 60, and free food boxes for older adults and other families in the community

    • Healthier and more active lives: Collaborating with other organizations we provide a range of programs and workshops for all older adults
