Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities frequently report feeling isolated at higher rates than the rest of the general population. Over the pandemic, this has increased as opportunities for social interaction became even more limited. The Arc of Larimer County is proud to announce its new volunteer program, “Reach Out Reach Up.” The program will connect volunteers and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities together. They will share weekly zoom check-ins to stay socially connected during social distancing.
Those interested in participating – either as a volunteer or a participant (an adult living with an intellectual and developmental disability), should apply below:
