TENT is here to help.

A community of elders and neighbors supporting one another

Mission Statement

To connect members to resources needed to maintain comfortable, dignified, vibrant lives in their homes and community by providing appropriate services, activities, and programs that will further this purpose.


All of our volunteers are vaccinated but due to the current increase of Covid-19  cases we are again asking Members to request only essential services. Our aim is to reduce person to person contact.

  • Transport: Wear masks and the passenger rides in the rear seat opposite of the driver with diagonally opposite windows open to create an air curtain between driver and passenger. See article here.
  • Home visits: Member and volunteer must wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Public meetings: We will not resume public meetings until further notice. 
  • Shopping: If you can please use the services of the grocery stores to pre-pack your order then TENT will deliver your order.

Many elders in Taos have difficulty living alone without help. We are a community of elders and neighbors who will provide social contacts, transportation, minor home repairs, and caregiver relief. Would you like to help?


Volunteer Services

We have dozens of volunteers who have offered to provide transportation, social contact, minor housekeeping, and home repairs, occasional pet care or gardening, and caregiver relief.

Volunteers all have background screening and go through an orientation. We do not provide any medical services.

We started providing services in October 2018 and are always looking for new volunteers. Sign up here.
