Atlantis Community advocates for all people with disabilities to be a meaningful part of an integrated community of their choice.
Atlantis was founded in 1975. A group of young disabled adults and six concerned staff from a Denver nursing home concluded that no amount of outings to concerts or bingo games could normalize life for these young people. The real solution was to move into the community, in apartments within the city's neighborhoods, to create self-determined lifestyles where the disabled clients choose their own food, direct their own care, and determine their own priorities.
