Resources

Sometimes Atlantis Community, Inc. may not have the resources, programs, or staff necessary to help in a particular situation—whether that’s due to funding constraints, limitations of our Independent Living programs, or a lack of training/knowledge (for example: we do not have anyone on staff qualified to give legal advice or provide legal services). However, that does not mean we cannot still be useful to you! Even when there is nothing we can personally do, we still have the information and networking necessary to connect people with the programs and services that they need out in the community. Whether you’re looking to purchase a new wheelchair or trying to find apartment that is affordable and accessible, Atlantis may be able to help guide you in the right direction.

Check out the database below for information on a variety of resources and organizations that can help many different situations and needs.

211 Colorado/United Way

"Colorado 2-1-1 is a simple and easy-to-remember number and website that people can access when they need help or want to give help. Often times, people don't know where to go for help... or that help is available. People don't know that emergency food and shelter assistance are available, as well as much, much more. 211, your community solution, provides a direct link to non-emergency help for health and human services."
