    Fostering Diverse Educational and Social Programs for Seniors

    of All Ages

  • Welcome to Senior Matters

    Senior Matters is a non-profit corporation that serves seniors
    in Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley

    The folks in Carbondale realized that there were many offerings for our youth and other age groups, but there was no specific organization offering activities for seniors. Thanks to the efforts of Virginia "gina" Sterrett, and many others, Senior Matters was formed in 2006.

    This website is for you to use to find out just what Senior Matters is accomplishing with seniors here in the valley.

  • Who We Are

    Senior Matters 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 and the surrounding communities of the Roaring Fork and Crystal River valleys.

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

    Senior Matters is supported by grants, donations and fundraisers. Our non-profit raises money by hosting a refreshment booth serving snow cones and other treats at the weekly summer Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, Carbondale's Dandelion Days in May, Carbondale's Potato Days in October and annual fundraising campaigns.

    We always need volunteers to help with these enjoyable activities and our other programs. We celebrate and honor our volunteers at the annual Spring Fling.

    Our Mission is to:

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