We are open normal business and clients hours on Monday, February 19th – President’s Day. If you need help, want to drop off a donation or just would like to visit, we will be here.


Every year, you – supporters, volunteers, clients and the general public – help us earn our “Great NonProfts Top Rated Seal.” Thank you so much!

We are asking you to help again this year! Between now and March, please visit our profile page and click on “Share your story” – give us a star rating (1 through 5) and share your story about TLC!

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. Since 1984 we have been meeting our clients’ most basic needs while helping them move towards self-sufficiency. As the only food pantry and human services organization located in and serving the Tri-Lakes region of northern El Paso County, we are a critical resource for those in need.
