More about the Denver Senior Coalition Chapters

The Denver Senior Coalition (DSC) Chapters are networking organizations with members ranging from senior housing, home health industry, health and medical services, referral agencies, professional services such as legal and financial and other community-based service organizations. Members include both individuals and companies and for-profit, non-profit and government agencies. Most of the funds we raise through membership, go to our Joint Coalition Assistance Fund (JCAF). Non-profits who are members by July of 2022 can apply for grants from these funds. JCAF grants are awarded in December.

The four chapters of the Denver Senior Coalitions are:

  • EAST Chapter
    Formerly known as East Coalition for Senior Services
  • NORTH Chapter
    Formerly known as Northwest Denver Council for Seniors
  • SOUTHWEST Chapter
    Formerly known as Southwest Coalition on Aging
  • SOUTH Chapter
    The South Chapter is our newest chapter and was formed in 2017

For 2022, we will have two meetings a month – one is a Zoom meeting and the other an in-person networking meeting. All members, of all chapters are invited to all meetings. The meetings are from 9:30AM to 11:00AM. Here is the meeting schedule:

  • 2nd Wednesday of the Month is a Zoom Webinar featuring 4 to 5 members each talking about their services for 10 minutes each.
  • 4th Thursday of the Month is an in-person networking meeting featuring 4 to 5 members each talking about their services for 10 minutes each.
  • HOWEVER, on the 4th Thursday of the month of the 3rd month of the quarter (March, June, Sept, Dec) we will bring in a single speaker or have a panel of speakers that present on an educational topic important to our members. The December meeting will be our holiday gathering.
  • In addition, we ask that only fully vaccinated members attend the in-person meetings. These plans could change if there are significant changes with COVID-19.

Locations of Meetings

Stay tuned for more details on our meeting locations.

The December Holiday Gathering

The December meeting is typically a holiday gathering held in early December at a large retirement community or hospital. COVID-19 has changed this for the foreseeable future and we are looking for alternative locations. At the holiday meeting we announce the Joint Coalition Assistance Fund Awardees.

The Joint Coalition Assistance Fund (JCAF)

The Joint Coalition Assistance Fund (JCAF) receives monies that have been paid as dues to the four Denver Senior Coalitions Chapters. We have a “Joint Coalition Assistance Fund (JCAF) Committee Rep” that reviews the applications and makes the very difficult decision on who to award the JCAF funds to – LEARN MORE

Non-profit Denver Senior Coalition members can apply for the JCAF award however, they must have joined the organization before the end of July of the year they are applying
