About Us

This organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that is dedicated to the improvement of quality of life for seniors in the mountain town of Carbondale, Colorado and the surrounding communities of the Roaring Fork and Crystal River valleys.

Our mission statement is to:

Foster diverse educational and social programs for seniors of all ages.


Senior Matters works with local and state governments, such as Garfield County Human Services and the Alpine Area Agency for Aging. We are recognized as a senior citizen caregiver for our region.

Senior Matters is supported by grants, donations and fundraisers.

Senior Matters raises money by hosting a refreshment booth, serving snow cones and other treats, at the weekly summer Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, May's  Dandelion Day ,and October's Potato Day. The Rodeo sales and their grant accounts for over half our rents in the TSC. 


We always need volunteers for these enjoyable activity and others.. We celebrate and honor our volunteeers in October with a lunch and Bingo.
