About Casa Del Sol
In the 1980ís, a small group of people in the lower Arkansas Valley were ready to move from their own homes, giving up lawn care, snow shoveling, and general upkeep of their property in favor of a retirement setting. By the fall of 1989, land had been purchased. Ground was broken in September of 1991 for the first eight-unit building designed for independent retirement living. With its completion, Piñon, as it became known, saw the first group of pioneers move in during the spring of 1992. The next group of eight-plexes, Cedar, Pine, Spruce, and Juniper were completed in 1993, 1995, and 1998, and Ponderosa was completed in 2001. Our first two duplexes were completed in the fall of 2001. Aspen Center was completed in 1999, and it provides much needed office, activity, and dining space. A year later a resident woodworking and maintenance shop was added to our campus. More duplexes have been added to the campus with room for additional duplexes in the future.
Casa Del Sol, with its dedicated community-based board of directors, has been committed to providing an attractive setting for the well being of all its residents. Casa Del Sol is a not-for-profit facility sponsored by local churches.
Amigos de Casa
Volunteers have always been an integral part of Casa Del Solís development and growth. As we continue to grow there are more and more ways in which volunteers can be used. For that reason a decision was made to have an official volunteer organization. In the spring of 2000 the group chose this name, appointed coordinators, and began meeting quarterly. There are many people who have special talents to share.
Amigos de Casa provides many opportunities and rewards for being a volunteer at Casa Del Sol. If you would like to know more about volunteering or becoming a member of Amigos de Casa, call 719.384.0342.
