To empower people with disabilities and their families with information and training to help them be their own best advocate.

Through love, wisdom and support of their families and communities, people with disabilities can lead happy and productive lives.

Parents who have children with disabilities or any special need benefit from the support that comes from others who have had the same experience.

El Grupo VIDA offers this opportunity, education and information and valuable social spaces during the year for the whole family.

Families who have children or adults loved ones with disabilities:
     - are encouraged to take charge of their situation and take the road to take part in the
        real world, and
     - celebrate the gifts of all your children but especially those who have disabilities or
        special needs.

We invite you to connect with us with a call to (303) 904-6073 or by sending a message to info@elgrupovida.org.
