She makes it look easy, but it’s not. Wearing a number of hats and capably managing several programs just happens to be second nature for Eva Veitch, a former Executive Director of All Points Transit and Director of Outreach for Volunteers of America. Today—in addition to volunteering as a Montrose Chamber of Commerce Redcoat and with Montrose Altrusa–Eva serves as Region 10’s Community Living Services Director, heading the Area Agency on Aging (AAA), for which she secures and directs federal, state and potentially private financial support to regional contractors who serve adults over 60 years of age. These contracts help fund a wide variety of services for senior citizens, including senior dining, meals on wheels, transportation services, dental services, homemaker services, legal services and many others.
Eva also oversees the ARCH, or Adult resources for Care and Help, and serves as Regional Ombudsman. She is assisted by Region 10 Community Living Services Options Counselor Amy Rowan. Among the services and programs offered through Region 10 Community Living Services are:
  • Information and referrals to programs that are designed to support and serve people over 60 and those with disabilities in their own communities;
  • Help with long-term service and support programs—we can even help you apply and follow up on your application;
  • Advocacy through our long-term-care ombudsman program, which provides support, training and oversight for people residing in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities;
  • Education and support for staff and families of long-term-care residents.We welcome and empower volunteers who join the team—so if you are passionate about human services, and want to make a positive difference for seniors and people with disabilities, please call Eva Veitch at Region 10 Community Living Services, 970-249-2436. We will help you put your hands and heart to work with meaningful programs and activities that improve lives.

Region 10 Announces New Technical Assistance Program

Region 10 Announces New Technical Assistance Program


  Small Business Resource Center

With 40 years of experience serving local communities with programs and services that make the most of available dollars by leveraging resources, Region 10 was a natural fit when it came to developing a new satellite office to serve the Montrose-Delta Community.  The Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) is a collaborative effort among numerous local partner organizations. The SBRC will bring Technical Assistance educational programs for the benefit of local business owners – providing classes on Starting A business, using QuickBooks, using Excel, developing a professional business plan and much more.   Region 10 comes with the knowledge, expertise and support needed to take a new business from idea through implementation.

“This has been such a positive community partnership. From local banks, to the Chamber to the City, the local support has been overwhelming” Region 10 SBRC Director Vince Fandel said. “Our community needs a professionally-developed, driven and conducted technical assistance educational program for the small business owners with qualified instructors and counselors who can help our small business community expand.”

Community Partners to date, in addition to Region 10, include: Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Colorado Mesa University; Dalby Wendland & Company; City of Montrose; US Bank; Montrose Bank; Colorado Workforce ; Wells Fargo Bank; and Timberline Bank.

In addition to offering support services and classes through the SBRC in both Montrose and Delta locations, Region 10 will become a satellite office of the Small Business Development Center in May, with SBDC counselor Susan Bony available to consult on an as-needed basis.
