Letter from our Executive Director

Thank you for your interest in Creating Transitions!

We are a new supportive service agency serving the Jefferson County region. Though we are new, our model is based on our parent-organization that has been in existence for over 30 years. We are excited to bring this model to Colorado.

Creating Transitions (CT) is unique in that we are fully indiviudalized for each participant. Located in an apartment complex, we teach all aspects of life skills: finance, mobility, social skills, cooking, meal planning and shopping. We also offer supported employment and vocational training at a variety of jobsites in the community. Training is available in small crews or as independent placements. Our goal is for every participant to have a full life that they want. Additionally we offer support in community activities and accessing community college classes. For those interested in learning how to live in an apartment with roommates, we will be offering our OverNighters program. More information to come. By listening to the individual, we design a program to fit his/her needs based on interests and goals. 

We have a strong technology focus to help our clients be more successful with less support from staff. This occurs via smart phone technology, graphic organizers, prompting devices and much more. We are happy to train other outside support personelle and familiy members so the technology can be used and generalized to all settings. 

To support families, we offer quarterly resource nights. We invite specialists from the community (Social Security, Medicaid, Community College, etc) for you to meet and gain more information with planning for your child. This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet other families! If there is a topic you are interested in, please let us know.

At Creating Transitions, we are all about fun and having a full life. From going to work, to taking a yoga class at the local Rec Center, to shopping for your favorite meal, CT will help you every step of the way. We want our participants to be as independent as they can be while living the life they choose.

We welcome you to contact us with questions!

 

Peace, 

Karla Schroeder
