Arts & Community Exploration Services for the Disabled in Denver, CO

At SHALOM Denver, our main goal is to help individuals who are living with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live their lives to the fullest. We understand that in order to help people live their best lives, we need to do much more than just help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities find employment. We know that we also must help them get involved with the things that occur around Denver everyday as well. That's exactly what SHALOM Denver does through our ACE: Arts and Community Exploration program.

SHALOM Denver's ACE: Arts and Community Exploration


SHALOM Denver’s ACE: Arts and Community Exploration program is a people-centered interactive day program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It focuses on the whole person, community involvement, and integration, with stimulating activities tailored to each participant’s unique needs and personality. The richness of different cultures is celebrated through crafts, foods, literature, history, and art. At SHALOM Denver, we know that being involved in the community extends so much further than work, and we want to do what we can to get the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities involved with the community through fun projects, crafts, and programs.

Helping Denver’s Disabled get involved in the community


Healthy lifestyles are encouraged through nutrition, yoga, and exercise. Passionate, creative expression is learned through a variety of arts and craft activities. Open expression of feelings is encouraged, resulting in the development of healthy relationships. Participants explore the community at cultural and art centers, parks, libraries, shopping centers, and museums. Participants of SHALOM Denver's ACE: Arts and Community Exploration program enjoy helping others by volunteering, recycling, and donating time and money to the community.
