About the Denver Senior Coalition

More about the Denver Senior Coalition

The Denver Senior Coalition (DSC) is making changes for 2024. We are combining our four chapters into one large chapter and simplifying our membership rates.

We are still a great networking organizations for those groups working with older adults. Our members range 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 smaller individual organizations, large organizations with multiple members, 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 in a given year can apply for grants from these funds. JCAF grants are awarded in December.

For 2024, we will have two meetings a month – one is a Zoom meeting and the other an in-person networking meeting. All members 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
