HILLS, Inc is a proud registered Colorado non-profit organization that since 2008 has been providing a variety of social, recreational and therapeutic programs to almost 400 residents of Colorado with either developmental disabilities or a traumatic brain injury. Our goal is to provide fully accessible opportunities that allow people to get outdoors, be social, and access areas like state and national parks around the country that they have never been able to see before due to their disabilities. Our staff includes professional care givers and behavioral specialists that can work with travelers who can only access the community with 1:1 supervision. Whether it is watching a rousing musical at the Denver Center For Performing Arts during one of our popular day trips, discovering your crafty side during our monthly Fun Fridays at our office in Northglenn, diving down into the ocean depths aboard a submarine off the coast of Hawaii, or finding a special lucky charm in the rich, emerald hills of Ireland, we are certain there is a trip that fulfills every traveler’s desire! In addition to our fun scheduled trips throughout the year across the USA and abroad, we also provide customized trips for groups, and travel companion services for family reunions, holidays, weddings, conferences, or simply a private vacation.
