This blog post is from Imagine! CEO Mark Emery's blog post on June 20, 2014.
The video below was produced by the Colorado Department of Human Services and features the story of Bobby. Bobby lived at the Wheat Ridge Regional Center for nearly 50 years. A little less than a year ago, he moved to Imagine!'s 19th St. Group home, designed to meet the needs of people with significant physical disabilities.
It was the first time Bobby lived outside of the Regional Center since he was six years old, and he is now enjoying many activities with his new neighbors and friends. He is particularly proud of his personalized room decorations and enjoys spontaneous activities like spending time with horses at a nearby stable. Besides dedicated caregivers, Bobby now has a room of his own, a park nearby, and a view of the Flatirons from his front door.
