Northwest Colorado Center for Independence offers free services to seniors and people with disabilities who would like to identify and accomplish their goals through an Independent Living Plan. Our staff works with—not for—people, to establish objectives and develop actionable tasks, duties, and responsibilities. It is vital that the individual chooses and directs their services in this process. The process includes bringing together family, friends, advocates and service providers with clear roles in supporting the individual in the implementation of their plan.
General Purpose: The Independent Living Intern works with the IL Coordinator to provide training, support, advocacy, information and referral, Independent Living Skills development and Transition Services for people with disabilities to achieve or maintain independent living in the community. Performs routine clerical and administrative work associated with case records and documentation of duties, tasks and responsibilities.
Corps members serve up to 35 hours in partner agencies. Up to 8 hours a week is spent in personal and professional development as a team.
