North Fork Senior Connections (NFSC) is an independent, locally-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operating throughout the North Fork Valley on the Western Slope of Colorado. Our mission is to help adults 65 and older age in place and in community. We believe that all persons deserve to age in place if that is what they choose, and that the community has the capacity to support that choice. We further believe that older adults have a role to play in the life of the community and unique perspectives that should be included, valued and respected.
