(Lafayette, CO) – TRU Community Care, a nonprofit organization providing hospice and supportive services to the Boulder community and beyond, has received a $300,000 Worthy Cause grant from Boulder County. TRU Community Care will allocate these funds (capital only) to its new TRU PACE facility located at 2593 Park Lane in Lafayette. TRU PACE stands for Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly.
Scheduled to open in early 2017, TRU PACE coordinates and provides all needed preventive, primary, acute, and long-term care services so that older individuals can continue living safely in their community. TRU PACE is an innovative model that enables individuals who are 55 years old or older and certified by the state to need nursing home care to live as independently as possible. TRU PACE will help participants and their family members navigate the complicated issues associated with aging.
In 2008, county voters approved “Worthy Cause III,” a 10-year extension of a .05 percent sales and use tax that helps with debt reduction (payments toward capital debts such as mortgages and loans for construction/renovation) and funding of capital facilities for nonprofit organizations. These funds help with the high price of obtaining and/or improving facilities that fit nonprofits’ specific needs as they serve the population. The tax expires in 2018.
