Good News Friday!

Today I’d like to offer thanks to a few folks who have been tremendous in their recent support of Imagine!.

Boulder County Public Health 

At Tuesday evening’s Imagine! Board of Directors meeting, Linda Kopecky, Breastfeeding Friendly Environments Project Coordinator, Boulder County Public Health, presented Karen Kalis, Imagine!’s Director of Human Resources, with a certificate designating Imagine! as a Breastfeeding Friendly Company.

The designation comes a few months after Imagine! was awarded a $1,000 grant from Boulder County Public Health to help us create a safe and comfortable lactation space at our Dixon St. office building, as well as assisting in equipping the room. Imagine! was the first recipient of this grant funding in Boulder County!

Thank you, Boulder County Public Health, for giving us this designation, but more importantly, for giving us the opportunity to support the new mothers in our workforce!  

University of Colorado President’s Leadership Class 

Imagine! was so fortunate to have recently collaborated with students in a University of Colorado President’s Leadership Class. The students partnered with Imagine! over the past several months on a project designed to help Imagine! improve communication with and among our employees. This can be a challenging task, as Imagine! has a large workforce that is operating 24/7 and is geographically dispersed. The students were bright and eager, asked great questions, and gave us some fantastic and creative ideas that we are already working on implementing. We are so fortunate for the many ways we have been able to collaborate with CU over the years, which has helped us become more efficient and effective in delivering services to local citizens with intellectual disabilities.

Town of Superior Youth Leadership Council

Over Spring Break, a group of students from Superior’s Youth Leadership Council took some time to make a difference by volunteering during Imagine!’s Out & About School Closure Day activities. We are so appreciative of their efforts to help and their desire to learn more about their fellow citizens who have intellectual disabilities.
