17 Mile House

17 Mile House Farm Park open house events have concluded for 2022. More family fun and educational events will start back up in April 2023. The house and barn interiors are open for group tours and school visits by appointment only. Visitors can step back in time at 17 Mile House, a 160-year old farm which served as an important resting stop for pioneers traveling on the Cherokee/Smoky Hill wagon trails in the 1860s. This County-designated heritage area is managed by Open Spaces with support from volunteers. Volunteers lead tours, interpret historical and natural history, and provide hands-on experiences. Volunteers also create interpretive displays, maintain the gardens, and care for the historic collection of artifacts.

Arapahoe County Fair

The Arapahoe County Fair happens each year, the last weekend in July.

Snow Shoveling for a Senior

Pair up with a neighbor in need within walking or close driving distance of your own home. For neighbors in need of assistance, snowy walkways and driveways create a significant safety hazard. You provide a genuinely needed service to your neighbor and build a greater sense of community by shoveling them out.

Shoppers for Seniors

Volunteers are paired with one or more seniors to help with weekly (or as needed) grocery store trips. The volunteer can also assist with putting groceries away, prescription pick-up, and mail pick-up.

The volunteer and the senior will agree on COVID-19 precautions as they determine appropriate. This is an ongoing volunteer role with a 6 months minimum commitment. 

Point-In-Time Homelessness Survey

The Point-In-Time Homelessness survey is an annual count of Colorado‚Äôs homelessness population provides valuable information for the state to understand and respond to the needs of transient individuals.
