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.

Medical Transport

If you need a ride to a medical appointment out of town, call 505-391-9231 or write SeniorHelp@ncnmedd.com. TENT may be able to help, but we have very few distant drivers.  Click here for a flyer.

Food Support

There are food banks at St James Church on Thursday afternoons, at El Pueblito on alternate Wednesdays, and in Questa.

Virus and Influenza

Upper respiratory viruses are always a threat to seniors. Avoid Closed spaces, Crowded places, and Close-contact settings. Wear a close-fitting face mask if you must.

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 home repairs, 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.

TENT is located on the land and territories of Indigenous peoples. Taos is the traditional homelands to Taos Pueblo, the Red Willow People. TENT respectfully acknowledges the original inhabitants of these lands where we live and work and recognizes both that they still reside in the area, and their continuing connection to land, waters, and community. We honor the impact of their wisdom, generosity, and sacrifice since time immemorial. We pay our respects to them and their culture and to Elders both past and present.
