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.

Griffith Centers for Children - Chin Ups
Chins Up was formed in 1974 as an organization that addressed the unmet needs of children and adolescents in the Colorado Springs community who were victims of abuse or were suffering from emotional and behavioral problems. What began as a short-term shelter has evolved into a wide range of community based programs serving over 32 Colorado counties annually. With sites in Colorado Springs, and Metro Denver, Griffith now specializes in providing a full continuum of therapeutic treatment and academic services for boys, girls, and families. We are licensed and nationally accredited to serve children from birth to 21 years of age.
Mile High Youth Corps.
During our 22-year history, the Corps has successfully transitioned from a small, seasonal, neighborhood-based organization to a comprehensive, year-round regional agency serving fifteen counties throughout Metropolitan Denver and the Southern Front Range. MHYC programs are nationally recognized while meeting continued local needs. From recent fires; flood mitigation and restoration efforts to building affordable housing units to lowering water and energy usage in over 20,000 homes, MHYC matches the talents and skills of local youth with the needs of our community.
