HILLS, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to offer affordable opportunities for people with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injury, that promote health, foster independence and further enable each of our clients to become contributing members of their communities. In addition to the rewarding opportunities we provide to our travelers and participants, involvement in HILLS also provides caregivers with well-deserved respite. This valuable time can then be used to attend to other personal or family needs that all too often go unfulfilled due to extensive responsibilities.
HILLS Inc, which stands for Healthy Independent Leisure and LifestyleS, was inspired by the founder, and former executive director's, brother, David, who has down syndrome and has struggled leading a healthy life, which many of us can relate to. Since David started applying more healthy lifestyle skills, he has seen amazing changes in so many different areas of his life. HILLS wants to be the catalyst for positive changes for other people like David.
HILLS is located in Denver, but also serves residents throughout Colorado as well as out of state. If you live outside of Colorado and would like to participate in our trips, simply call or email and we can talk about the variety of options that exist. Please take your time to check out this website where you will learn about all of our fun trips we lead around the world!
