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.

Effective March 17, 2020: TLC is closed to the public for onsite client services. We are currently using remote service options to continue to provide supplemental groceries services, financial assistance, and medical assistance services. For more information please see:

How can I help?

We are grateful for all the community support as we continue to serve those in our community who are most vulnerable to the economic downturns related to COVID-19.

The best way to help is to make a financial donation. Your donation will be leveraged alongside other donors’ financial support, TLC’s purchasing power, and our tax-exempt status to fill the most needed items in our pantry or help with any other assistance a client made need (like rent or utilities help).
