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 currently closed to the public for onsite client services. We will continue using remote and no-contact service options to continue to provide grocery services, financial assistance services, and medical assistance services.

We always welcome inkind donations of food items, household cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items. You can review  our donation guidelines to see what we accept or visit  our Current Pantry needs to see what is needed now.

Please make sure you check expiration dates on all food products as we have to dispose of outdated items at our own cost, using resources could otherwise be used for other needs.

Donation Drop-off hours are Monday – Thursday, 9 am to 4 pm. Come to the receiving area of our building (west side, off the alley); ring the doorbell and someone will come to help you.
