Our Independent Philosophy

The NorthWest Colorado Center for Independence (‘NWCCI’) works with, not for, people in our communities to achieve goals for living well in the community with a disability. NWCCI staff work with people to identify a goal and develop a solid plan with actionable tasks, duties and responsibilities, the process includes the bringing together of a support circle made up of family, friends, loved-ones, advocates and service providers who have clear roles for how each will work with the individual to implement the Independent Living Plan. We strive to be part of an inclusive community where natural supports supplant the need for institutional care and take the heavy burden off of the safety net of service providers. Peer support is a foundation for how we provide support in a more effective way, we are people with disabilities working here at NWCCI who are living well in our communities. NWCCI services are free to anyone who has a disability and would like to work with us to set a goal and work on it. We work with seniors and people with disabilities to live at home by maintaining the ability to choose and direct our own supports. We look forward to describing in more detail the history, philosophy, paradigm shift and particulars about how we do what we do to realize more inclusive and healthy communities.
