New Adventures

A new program for children with disabilities and their families in Southern Colorado.

New Adventures is an inclusive and safe respite program that gives children and teens with disabilities ages 6 -18 the opportunity to explore, while providing parents and caregivers with a much-needed break from caregiving duties.

The program lasts 4-6 hours and will take place 1-2 Saturdays per month. Each Saturday, we will host 10-12 children. The program will be staffed with a program coordinator, a registered nurse, an arts and crafts instructor, and local nursing students, ensuring a 1:1 staff:child ratio so that everyone is safe and included. Our senior program manager will oversee all activities.

  • 1-2 Saturdays per month, 4 - 6 hour program.
