Tri-Lakes Cares is a community-based, volunteer-supported resource center whose purpose is to improve people’s lives through emergency, self-sufficiency and relief programs. As the only food pantry and human services organization located in, and serving the northern El Paso County, we are a critical resource for those in need.

Tri-Lakes Cares is still closed to the public for onsite client services through January 1, 2021. We will continue using remote and no-contact service options to continue to provide grocery services, financial assistance services, and medical assistance services.
