"When we moved to Pine Junction, my husband, Edward, had been diagnosed with brain cancer. Within days, Suzanne came over from Mount Evans to start his physical therapy. Because I suffer from macular degeneration, a Mount Evans volunteer, Liz, began coming every week to read to us.

When Ed reached the point where he needed hospice care, two nurses came regularly to make sure he was comfortable, and when he died, his nursing assistant, Brenda, arranged everything. I felt so ‘looked after’! Even though Ed is gone, I haven’t ended my relationship with Mount Evans. They took wonderful care of me after I underwent hip-replacement surgery years after we started with Mount Evans, Liz still comes by every week to read to me." - Margaret C.

"I consider Mount Evans my extended family. The wonderful and caring staff has been with me through three deaths over the years. My first husband, died in 1995 of cancer, loved and supported by the Mount Evans nurses who had worked with him over the years in the medical field. After his death, I began volunteering at Mount Evans and found my niche on the bereavement team. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the angel making, making decorations for the yearly fundraiser, and numerous other jobs.

When I lost my son to a stroke and my second husband who passed from with complications from Parkinson’s disease, the speech therapist, nurse, social worker and CNA were skilled caregivers to my loved ones at the end of their lives. The compassion shown to me and my children helped us beyond measure. I shall always support this great organization and am forever grateful and thankful for the role that Mount Evans has played in our mountain community and in my life." - Sue H.

These are just two testimonials from countless individuals whom we've been able to support, and who have helped us in return, over the years. You can find more, plus videos, on our Colorado Gives donation page. We hope that you too will consider supporting us with any size donation that is comfortable for you so that we may continue to serve those in need in our mountain community. Thank you!

Adele, a 6th Grader at The Venue Theatre, said this about her experience this year-
“The Venue is extremely important to me. It’s exciting to perform on stage with a group of people who support you. It’s really easy to make friends because everyone is so nice. Each time you do a new play, it’s like entering a new world where you can be anybody. Also, it’s really helpful to have a place were you feel like you belong when you’re in middle school, because middle school is super stressful, and the Venue helps make your day a whole lot more fun and overall just makes you happy!”

Every penny helps us to continue to support these amazing kids! Please consider donating this holiday season!

Today is Giving Tuesday. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, it's meant to remind us to give back to those organizations who exist to help those in need in our community. Our mountain area nonprofits often fill the roles that government would, but that we are missing with being an unincorporated area.

Colorado Gives Day is the perfect opportunity to donate as it gives our local nonprofits the added bonus of qualifying for a portion the $1.6 million incentive fund, thereby increasing the impact of your gift. Please click any of the links in the first post in the topic to learn more about the organizations in the mountain coalition and to submit your generous donation now through December 6th. Thank you!

Proudly serving mountain Jeffco, Clear Creek & Park County!

How Does StageDoor Benefit from Your Colorado Gives Day Donation?

Every dollar you donate supports our full range of programs...from our K-12 Education and Performance Programs, through our Adult Productions, to music, dance, and community events. StageDoor is Your Mountain Home for the Performing Arts. Your donation makes a huge difference to hundreds of students, countless adults and volunteers, and patrons throughout our mountain community.

If everyone contributes just $10, we could have our best Colorado Gives ever! Or, many of us prefer to give monthly...your $5 or $10 per month goes to support all of our programs (including Spongebob), and it's really easy to give.

Just click on this link:


From Nate, 8th grade student at StageDoor Theatre:
“I have learned many things from theatre, such as dancing, tapping, and singing. For me, theatre also brings deeper meaning. It’s a bonding experience and a very safe place for everybody. You can be yourself here”.

Please support StageDoor as a place for kids to learn, grow, and be themselves.

For over 25 years, StageDoor Theatre has provided a theatrical home to this mountain community we call home.

Happy Colorado Gives Day!

Finding Hope
There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays

Pictured above, Client Advocate Susie, John with their brand new Christmas tree and Executive Director, Dale Flanders.

There's no place like home for the holidays and that is exactly where John and Maria will be spending their Christmas.. in their new home! We are excited to share that the happy couple was housed in Evergreen by way of EChO programs and the dedication of Client Advocate, Susie and Director of Program Services, Amy.

The holidays can be a time of cheer and fellowship but for some, it can be spent on a sidewalk, in a vehicle or even in situations not ideal for overall health. EChO may be the only place for some of our neighbors to find hope, community and safety. We are called to invest in people and this is why we work tirelessly to bless our clients, volunteers, donors and staff as often as we are able. Blessings come in many packages and for John and Maria, that's home and a shining beacon of hope found in a Christmas tree. A symbol, a small token but a large gesture of light not only literally but figuratively. Something we all can relate to. This Christmas, the greatest gift each of us could give to one another is the Christmas spirit. As we all remember the reason for the season we are in and what the holidays can bring to our lives, it's a great reminder to embody that spirit in hope, health and security. We aim to deliver that into as many homes as we can, whatever that may look like individually and as a whole. We hope this story has been a thank you to those who have championed our cause, an encouragement to invite others to join you and an investment toward better todays and brighter tomorrows. Merry Christmas to all.


Dale Flanders and the EChO Team
