A program of Easterseals Colorado, the Colorado Respite Coalition (CRC) is a vital statewide resource for caregivers of individuals of all ages with extensive care needs.

Easterseals Colorado Disability Benefits Services (DBS) assists individuals with disabilities to acquire income, health insurance, and other basic needs to stabilize their lives, health and living situations. Our services (listed below) support a philosophy that encourages and supports work as a goal - either as a supplement to disability benefits or, as health improves, working one’s way off disability benefits to financial independence. In line with this philosophy, we work closely with our employment department to offer employment services while assisting with SSI/SSDI. We also offer comprehensive benefits counseling for individuals who are receiving SSI/SSDI and are interested in working.

Employment Services creates and prepares work settings that promote the most independent work for each specific client. Working collaboratively with other agencies we create job opportunities that are individualized and designed to match the skills and strengths of the client with the needs of the employer.

Employment Services creates individualized plans to guide clients to their fullest potential. These plans help our clients understand and strive for their best in a setting that allows them to make measurable progress and reach identified goals. Reaching these goals continually develops each client's job skills allowing them to maintain employment in a supported setting or work completely independently.

Population(s) Served

Easterseals Colorado provides employment-focused services to students with disabilities who are transitioning out of high school and into community employment, post-secondary education, adulthood and independence. Our Pre-Employment Transition Services are aimed at promoting and exploring competitive, integrated employment options for these youth in transition.

Population(s) Served

Easterseals Colorado's Rocky Mountain Village Camp (RMV) in Empire, Colorado is regarded as one of the top Easterseals camps in the country. RMV is fully accessible and used by more than 1,200 children and adults living with disabilities throughout the year. RMV is about all the things people living with disabilities do -- campers enjoy swimming, fishing, overnight camping, outdoor cooking, travel camp, day trips, arts & crafts, sports & recreation, hiking, dances, music & drama, zip-lining and more. Our camp provides a safe, barrier-free environment for children and adults living with disabilities to experience all aspects of camp without usual limitations. During the off-season, RMV hosts R&R weekend respites and also functions as a rental and retreat facility for groups and individuals.

What is Discovery Club? A Saturday recreational program for children and teens living with any disability and any special health care need.
