Roundup Fellowship is a private, Colorado nonprofit that has been serving people with special needs since 1973. Roundup Fellowship originally served boys who were in trouble with the law or had been abused/neglected. In 1976, children with developmental disabilities were being moved out of institutional settings and into family-like homes in regular neighborhoods. At the request of Colorado state officials, Roundup Fellowship converted its St. Paul House into a group home for youth with developmental disabilities. St. Paul House became the second such small home in the State of Colorado established for children with developmental disabilities. Roundup Fellowship has continued to assess the needs of people with developmental disabilities in Colorado, designing programs and services that provide clients with additional opportunities to lead full, productive and healthy lives in appropriate environments. Today, Roundup Fellowship offers intensively staffed teaching homes for children/teens and adults, supported-living apartments for adults, vocational services, support and training for families, a community participation program for adults, and a school/day treatment for students with severe needs. These programs and services profoundly enrich the lives of the agency’s clients by helping them develop more self-sufficiency, and by enabling them to experience the accomplishments and connectedness that living, working and otherwise engaging in one’s community provides. We work with nearly 100 individuals with developmental disabilities everyday. Roundup Fellowship’s goals are to provide support and training in the skills, habits and behaviors necessary for people with developmental disabilities to function with greater independence in society. Roundup Fellowship has set the following goals and priorities: • Help people with developmental disabilities live effective, successful lives throughout childhood, adolescence and adulthood; • Present meaningful recreational, educational and cultural experiences – giving participants courage to learn something new, trust their own abilities and carry that forward in other areas of their lives; • To maximize each person’s efforts towards self-sufficiency; and • To provide services in the least restrictive environment in which people can experience acceptance, respect, understanding and a feeling of security. When an individual is able to access their community and their own home with the least restrictive amount of intervention or supervision, then Roundup Fellowship believes that a high amount of success has been achieved.
