Across Colorado, 68% of non-institutionalized individuals living with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) are unemployed and many of those who do have jobs are in irregular “enclave” employment isolated from the general public. Prior work experience is so often a prerequisite for anyone seeking employment, let alone adults with IDD.
Boulder Treasures was founded in 2013 by the parents of an adult daughter with IDD who experienced these barriers first hand. They were discouraged by the difficulties their daughter and her peers experienced in trying to secure employment after high school and decided to do something about it.
