The Crestone End Of Life Project (CEOLP) is a community-initiated organization founded in 2006 in the beautiful San Luis Valley, at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range in southern Colorado. CEOLP was conceived to facilitate localized end-of-life care in Crestone and supports area residents in handling the repose, memorialization and disposition of deceased loved ones. We support green burial and operate a legal, open-air cremation site near the town of Crestone.
Out of the satisfaction we have taken in our work, and the expressions of gratitude received from those we have served, we have developed a sense that this approach to death and dying is of great benefit to our society. For this reason we have undertaken to make ourselves available to advise people from other areas - whether individuals seeking to learn about options in caring for their own, or communities wanting to build a similar type of organization.
