Nothing About Me Without Me.


Live the life you want!

SWCI is an organization run by people with disabilities that promotes civil rights and self-determination for people in our disability and elder communities, and provides supports and training to remove barriers so people can live the life they want in southwest Colorado.

We envision a world where people with disabilities and elders are respected included members of their communities, making their own decisions, directing the supports and services they need to live well in the community, and giving back to the community from their strengths.
