STRiVE provides an array of person centered, community-based services and supports that assist people with developmental disabilities to achieve their fullest potential. STRiVE provides programs in an atmosphere that fosters self-esteem and confidence, and enhances each person’s opportunity for independence and growth. STRiVE is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors composed of consumers and family members, as well as human service and business professionals. STRiVE is funded primarily (80%) through the Colorado Department of Human Services and fees from disability payments, with supplemental funding from Mesa County, private donors and grants.
Our vision is for every person we serve to be included in all facets of the community, free to exercise the greatest degree of personal independence and empowered to pursue individual goals and dreams.
STRiVE is committed to, and holds these values as essential for, the quality of our operation: Integrity, Compassion, Mutual Trust, Respect, Teamwork, Meaningful Contributions, Accountability, Stability, Dependability & Positive Attitude.
