Atlas is a community-focused craft coffee shop in Littleton, Colorado that was created to love and serve our community. They hope to be a place where people can come breathe, and where the hustle and tension of everyday life can dissolve, if even for a moment. They wish to be a place that fosters connection and embodies a way of thinking that – instead of closing doors and removing ourselves – they throw them open and engage with the world around us.
Located in the heart of Englewood, Colo., CAFE 180 nourishes people by serving fresh, delicious food to everyone – whether by traditional exchange or by the exchange of a person’s time and talents. CAFE 180 aims to inspire others through dignified exchanges, the encouragement of self-sufficiency, and by opening people’s hearts and minds to the hunger that exists in our community.
The School to Work Alliance Program (SWAP) is designed to provide employment-related assistance to youth and young adults with disabilities, who are experiencing mild to moderate barriers to employment.
SHYFT at Mile High is a nonprofit that provides people from all walks of life with practices that are shown to help people heal from trauma, reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and ultimately experience more joy in daily living. SHYFT would like to “shift” how and who in our community have access to practices such as yoga, guided meditations, and more.
Since 1989, College Living Experience (CLE) has been providing post-secondary supports to students with varying exceptionalities. Dedicated to providing the highest quality of individualized services in the areas of academics, independent living, social skills, and career development, CLE supports are tailored to each young adult we serve. It is through personalized services, our team celebrates the uniqueness of students in such a way that we are able to make a lasting impact in their lives and in their communities. The success of CLE as the industry leader in post-secondary transition supports comes from our dedication to remain focused on the potential for each individual we serve. The evolution and innovation of CLE is defined by our mission which inspires us to reach beyond the boundaries of the traditional supports many of our families have been accustomed to their whole lives.

Informed by girls and their families, Girls Inc. of Metro Denver also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls.
Founded with the idea that people with differences deserve better, Dirt’s mobile coffee truck hit the ground in 2013 on a mission to change minds and change lives one cup at a time. Since its inception, Dirt has trained and employed over 100 individuals with neurodiversities while providing over $40,000 in scholarships to families in need and their caregivers.
From the ground up, our shop goes further to cultivate a culture of acceptance, inclusion, and opportunity while empowering others to do the same. Are you in love yet? Dirt breaks the expectation that a good cause comes with a lack of quality. Our baristas are neurodiverse, socially conscious, and craft a damn good cup of coffee. What’s in the cup is great, but what’s beyond the cup is life changing.
Gather+Grow was developed to fill a gap in high quality services for individuals with social and communication disorders. We provide comprehensive support services across the age span – from infancy through adulthood. Autism and related neurodiversity has for so long been viewed through a deficit-based lens. While it is important to understand and anticipate challenges, picking out one tree and calling it the forest is not helpful. Our task is to take in the whole landscape. At Gather+Grow, we teach through building relationships, focusing on strengths, acknowledging challenges, and respecting uniqueness. Our credentials are in the field of speech-language pathology, executive function coaching, and supported employment, but we choose to identify as seekers and empowerers.
