Before we part for the holidays, we want you to know how much we appreciate working alongside all of you. This has been an incredibly tough year, but our community has pulled together to support one another in ways not seen before. Here at Atlantis, we’ve worked to find creative solutions to unforeseen problems, but we know we can’t do this alone. Thank you to everyone who banded together to build a network that has strengthened our community.
Colorado’s cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, putting our community at increased risk and placing a strain on our already stretched health care system. As you celebrate the holidays, please stay safe by wearing a mask, staying home, and avoiding large groups if possible.
Atlantis will be closed from December 24th through January 3rd. Please visit our website should you need any resources that week.
We can’t wait to see you in 2021!
Your weekly update on what is going on in our community!
Once again, we will be distributing food boxes at The Atlantis Community, Inc., office as a part of our Covid-19 Relief: Food Box Program!
WEDNESDAY, 12/23 from 10-2 pm!
The number of boxes is limited and it is first come first serve. In order to access this program, you must be a Denver resident, you must be a person who identifies as having a disability, and the need for food must be related to COVID-19. For example, food access barriers related to the pandemic, loss of employment, etc.
No documentation is required.
