Background:
The Gilpin Connect program is an effort to handle the impacts of the closing of our only health care provider, Mountain Family Health, which closed in November 2014 after 36 years in the county. The concern is that residents with chronic health problems and few or no transportation options will not get the health care they require. This program will be a back-up option for the senior transportation services available through the Gilpin County Human Services Department. Ridership is not restricted by age or ability to pay.
