adaptive recreation opportunities

Adaptive Recreation Opportunities
The Adaptive Recreation Opportunities (ARO) program provides
quality and equal opportunities for recreation and leisure programs
to community members with disabilities. ARO offers healthy and fun
experiences through the following three basic service areas:
Inclusion
The City of Fort Collins welcomes individuals of all abilities to fully
participate in classes and programs listed in the Recreator. If you
are interested in participation support, indicate any accommodations
or adaptations that you may need when you register. Note: Requests
should be made at least two weeks before the class begins by
contacting Renee Lee at 970.224.6027, rlee@fcgov.com.
Transition
Offers assistance in making your recreation and leisure choices while
helping you be as independent as possible. A therapeutic recreation
professional helps you develop your personal Passport to Recreation
profile and discusses your needs, strengths, and interests.
Specialized
Designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with physical,
intellectual, and/or emotional disabilities. ARO programs include
trained staff, modifications, and adaptive equipment to provide for
optimal participation and quality experiences. Alternative Programs
are specialized programs designed for adults with intellectual
disabilities, focused on community activities and social outings, and
include activities such as monthly dances, outings, cooking, bowling,
and trips.
Attendants
There is no fee for personal care attendants providing needed
assistance unless otherwise noted. Attendants may need to register
separately and note whom they will be assisting.
Volunteer
Volunteers are always needed, whether assisting with a few events
or being a weekly support partner. No experience necessary; training
provided. Visit engage.fcgov.com/d/aro to apply or contact Becca
Heinze at 970.224.6125, bheinze@fcgov.com.
