Connecting ColoradoConnections for Independent Living encourages consumers seeking full or part time employment to register with the Colorado Division of Labor and Employment. As a registered user, available opportunities can be reviewed and applications for employment submitted. Visit the Colorado Workforce Center to create a free account. 

Although the public often believes that individuals living with disabling conditions are unable to work, this is not true. Connections seeks to improve education and employment outcomes, as well as increasing monthly incomes and expanding community participation for Coloradans who are disabled. 

Connections offers limited assistance and guidance to registered consumers who have questions regarding their employers and advocacy at the workplace. Contact your Connections Independent Living Specialist at (970) 352-8682 for additional information and to schedule an assistance appointment. Our in-person office hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, with appointments scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. You must have an appointment to meet in person.
