People Supporting People at STRiVE
STRiVE is here to provide the personalized care individuals need as we Strive to provide the best person-centered services, and our clients Strive to be independent and take greater control of their lives.
The STRiVE Family has lost a dear member of our team. Our wonderful Vice President and self-proclaimed Champion, Doug Sorter, lost his life in a tragic accident this week. Doug epitomized the spirit of our organization and absolutely everything he did, day in and day out, was to help better the lives of the amazing people we support. He was a true champion of community inclusion and wanted everyone to see the greatness of people who experience an intellectual or developmental disability and the immense value they bring to our society. His memory and legacy will never be forgotten by those who had the pleasure to work with him and especially by those he supported. We will miss his goofy sense of humor and playful attitude. Our community has lost a true leader and doer of great things. We miss you already big guy!

The Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm on Friday August 12, 2022, at the Colorado Mesa Ballroom in the University Center.

“Thank you for taking the time to make the lives of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities more complete.” Doug Sorter
STRiVE's partnership with Alida’s

Through this program individuals who participate in STRiVE vocational programming will work alongside others from the community who have a passion for producing prized, high quality, “Colorado Proud” products with local fruit and vegetables.
