We offer inclusion assistance for individuals with disabilities who wish to participate in other recreation programs offered by our department and need individual staff support to do so.
Please note, our staff cannot provide personal care assistance (i.e. changing clothes, feeding, bathroom care, etc.) If you're interested in registering in a general recreation class and need inclusion assistance, please contact Beth June at least two weeks in advance.
We welcome community members, students, care providers, parents and siblings to volunteer in our programs! Volunteers are vital to the success of many of our programs and can make a lasting, positive impact in the lives of others! For more information about available opportunities, please contact Beth June at 303-231-1317 or email Beth June.
