Let’s warm up a bit and enjoy Arizona at its finest. The Canal Convergence will be an experience like nothing you have seen before, as you see art installations soaring in the skies above. The Phoenix Zoo won’t disappoint - being the largest privately-owned zoo in America with 1,400 animals!. Then we will make a stop at the Desert Botanical Gardens where you will experience the unique and beautiful plants that thrive in some of the hottest and driest parts of the world. Lastly, walking the Sonoran Desert nature paths and hiking trails in Phoenix will show you why the region is so passionate about desert plants. To register email Annie at [email protected].

General information

FRIENDS of Broomfield, Inc. began in 1998 as a grass-roots parent network, which wanted to better the lives of their children with developmental disabilities. The name of the organization was chosen because it reflected the values of the organization. FRIENDS is an acronym for Fun, Recreation, Inclusive Experiences, Networking and Discovering the Spirit. The initial goal of the organization was to develop recreational opportunities in the Broomfield area for adults with developmental disabilities. This was achieved by establishing a Broomfield Special Olympic team in the fall of 1998. In 2000, FRIENDS of Broomfield successfully lobbied the City of Broomfield to hire a Therapeutic Recreation Coordinator and to offer therapeutic activities through the city’s recreation department. FRIENDS became a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 2002 with the mission to “ enrich the lives of our friends with developmental disabilities and their families by creating opportunities for participation in every aspect of community life.”. October, 2005, FRIENDS officially began with the FRIENDS Unlimited program, a community access/day program serving 6 adults. In addition to the day program, FRIENDS Night Out, a twice monthly evening social event, was initiated. In May 2008, FRIENDS established FRIENDS On My Own, an interactive independent apartment living program. Since its inception, FRIENDS currently serves over 40 clients in all 3 programs; each providing opportunities for participants to create new or enhance existing life skills making their life as fulfilling as possible, while also developing a social network of peers.
