DRS – A Center for Independent Living (CIL)

DRS is a certified Center for Independent Living serving Larimer and Jackson counties. This means we are a consumer-controlled, community-based, nonresidential, nonprofit grassroots agency. It also means we must perform an array of independent living services to people of any age with any disability, including five federally mandated core services:

  • Information and referral
  • Individual and systems advocacy
  • Independent living skills training
  • Peer mentorship
  • Transition service

To be certified also requires that more than 50% of staff and board of directors are people with disabilities.
