Support Groups

Experience our peer support groups

Each month, Connections for Independent Living hosts several peer support groups. These informal groups offer enrichment in physical and mental health, socialization, stress management, and disability education. All support groups are free of cost to Connections consumers.

Knowledgeable Connections staff members coordinate these voluntary groups, but it is the members who actively participate and guide the conversation. Participants offer support, teach valuable skills, and share useful information. Through active participation, consumers can overcome barriers, handle the stress of living with a disability, and gain awareness of resources that are helpful in maintaining personal independence through these interactions and tools. 

Unless otherwise noted, groups meet in-person at our offices at 1331 8th Avenue in Greeley. Many of these meetings are also available through video conferencing online.

As a Greeley 5-Star Certified Business, temperature checks upon check-in are required when entering our office. Social distancing is enforced. Face masks are required for any unvaccinated visitors (we have masks if you need one).

Please join us.
