We’re proud to work with a number of community partners throughout the Denver metro area, many whom offer free or low-cost events, workshops, support groups and more throughout the year. With summer in full swing, we encourage our clients and their families to try something new, meet other families in our network and enjoy the season with one (or more!) of the upcoming events listed below.
Wednesdays: Join REVEL every Wednesday from 3-5:30 p.m. for Meditation, Yoga and Gardening. REVELers practice mindfulness through meditation and yoga, and then get their hands dirty by working on their community garden.
Saturdays: Every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., Get Air Trampoline Park offers dedicated time for jumpers with special needs, and one parent can assist their child at no charge. Learn more here.
