Our Independent Philosophy

The NorthWest Colorado Center for Independence (NWCCI) works with people to achieve their goals for living well in more inclusive and healthy communities. We strive to foster communities where natural supports can supplant the need for institutional care and minimize reliance on service providers.

NWCCI offers free services to seniors and people with disabilities who would like to identify and accomplish their goals through an Independent Living Plan. Our staff works with—not for—people, to establish objectives and develop actionable tasks, duties, and responsibilities. It is vital that the individual chooses and directs their services in this process. The process includes bringing together family, friends, advocates and service providers with clear roles in supporting the individual in the implementation of their plan. 

We are people with disabilities working here at NWCCI who are living well in our communities. Please contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
