EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – The Eagle County Health and Human Services Department annouNced this week that the Vail Valley Partnership will manage and expand the Eagle County Volunteer Center. The Eagle County Volunteer Center has teamed up with community-based organizations and volunteers for more than 10 years. It is separate from the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, which will continue to be managed by Eagle County.

“We are thankful that the Vail Valley Partnership is committed to ensuring our community fosters and thrives on volunteerism,” said Rachel Oys, director of Health and Human Services. “Volunteers serve a pivotal role in filling the overwhelming service demands of our local organizations.”-

The Partnership plans to use technology and social media outlets to create an online community connected through volunteerism. A new website,, will include links for volunteers looking for organizations that need volunteer assistance.

The Volunteer Connection will be a part of the Partnership’s Non-Profit Network, which was established in 2004 as a resource for Vail Valley non-profit organizations.

“The Volunteer Connection is a natural extension of the Partnership’s community role of helping local businesses and non-profits to do business here in Eagle County,” said Chris Romer, Executive Director of the Vail Valley Partnership. “We hope to continue to help Eagle County’s non-profits connect with community and corporate volunteers and to serve as a centralized location for non-profit resources and volunteer engagement.”
