At Disabled Resource Services (DRS) we focus on helping people with all types of disabilities gain, regain or maintain their independence. A Colorado non-profit agency serving Larimer and Jackson counties, we advocate for change through calls to action for more accessible and integrated communities and we develop partnerships to accomplish more for the greater good of people with disabilities.
With more than 50% of staff having disabilities themselves, they are positive role models and provide peer support and mentoring. They share a bond that reflects the very nature of what it means to live with a disability, work with a disability or grow up with a disability.
DRS is a certified Center for Independent Living. It is one of nine non-profit agencies in Colorado that meet the unique and often complex needs of people with disabilities. Our staff helps them acquire renewed hope, assist with setting goals and developing a plan to succeed, get needs met and assure they increase their independence and quality of life.
