We need your help!

Please contact the Chairman of the Board of DRCOG, Ed Peterson, and urge him to restore funding to Senior Support Services. His email is

Ask him to consider these three questions:

1) Are Older Americans Act funds allocated by Congress to help those seniors with the greatest needs? (It's clear that they are.)

2) Is there any group of seniors in the Denver Metro area who have greater needs than those served by Senior Support? (It's clear there is not.)

3) How is DRCOG serving those seniors with the greatest needs? (It is not. Instead, it is serving seniors who are housed, among other things.)

Senior Support Services should be the first organization funded by DRCOG, not the last.

Thank you for your help!
