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.
