What We Do

This organization 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, Colorado and the surrounding communities of the Roaring Fork and Crystal River valleys.

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.
