ARO/ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMS
The Adaptive Recreation Opportunities program provides quality and equal opportunities for recreation and leisure programs to community members with disabilities. The ARO program offers healthy and fun experiences through the following three basic service areas.
Inclusion

Do you need assistance to fully participate in activities listed throughout the Recreator? The City of Fort Collins welcomes individuals of all abilities into our classes and programs. If you are interested in participation support, please indicate any special needs you may have when you register. Please note, Requests should be made at least two weeks before the class begins. Contact Renee Lee, CTRS, 970.224.6027, rlee@fcgov.com


Transition

If you need more assistance in making your recreation and leisure choices, but want to be as independent as possible, the Transition program might be right for you. Explore new experiences, learn about exciting recreation opportunities and meet new people.

A therapeutic professional will help you develop your personal Passport to Recreation Profile and discuss your needs, strengths, and interests. Call Alison Cope, MS, OTR 970.416.2024.
Specialized Programs

These programs are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities. They can be found in the Recreator identified by the symbol. The Alternative Programs are designed for adults with intellectual disabilities and focus on community activities and social outings. Program descriptions can be found in the Recreator in the Alternative Programs section and include monthly dances, outings, cooking, bowling, crafts and more!


Attendants

There is no fee for personal care attendants providing needed assistance unless otherwise noted; however, attendants need to register separately and note whom they will be assisting.


Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are always needed, whether assisting with a few events or being a weekly support partner. No experience is necessary; training is provided. Join us for fun and adventure! Call Jenna Van Fossan, CTRS, 224.6125.


Thank you!

A huge thank you to the many volunteers, key service and field practicum students, who help make our programs and services possible. We wouldn’t be able to do it without them!
