Our programs help you grow towards health and wholeness in all of SAMHSA’s Eight Dimensions of Wellness: social, environmental, physical, emotional, spiritual, occupational, intellectual and financial. We offer groups that focus on support, education, physical activity, and creative and musical expression. We also offer self-care services for members experiencing homelessness.
Our programs change depending on member needs and requests. Recent programs include Wii bowling, walking, mindfulness, music appreciation, karaoke, creative writing, scrapbooking, arts & crafts, Brain Meets Mind, Dance for Recovery, Modeling Your Recovery, Depression Bipolar Support Alliance, Through the Lens, Remember Story Time, and Art with Heart.
Recreation and Outings
Fun, physical activity and social time are important for healing and wholeness. Meet up with other members for a game of pool, air hockey, ping pong or foosball.
Join us for trips on Mondays and Fridays. Community Connections members go to the movies, museums, the zoo and other local attractions and events. We’ve been to Hammond’s Candy Factory, the Renaissance Festival and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
You can also give back to the community through our Giving Back program. Volunteer at the Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue or Food Bank of the Rockies, or help the Community Connections food bank by re-stocking and giving out items.
Peer Support Services
Resource Center, Library & Computer Lab
Our Resource Center, library and computer lab are open daily. You will find information about how to find a wide range of supports, like food and clothing banks and affordable housing. You can also get bus and train schedules. For members without homes, we offer some clothing and personal care items. These members can also do their laundry every Tuesday at 1:30 pm, and come to self-care day once a month at the Beck Recreation Center.
The library offers a quiet space for reading. It has a variety of books and magazines to check out. You can use the computer lab to check email, stay connected and apply for jobs.
You can get help with your bus fare if you have a pink RTD card or a red, white & blue Medicare card.
