College Prep and Falafel @msudenver @ArapahoeCC

Shaun, Davina, Loren, Mikayla and Dan cross at Church and Prince on the way to ACC

Over the past couple of weeks, the college prep class has visited local campuses. Our thanks the staff at Metro’s Access Center and Arapahoe CC’s Student Access Services for sharing their time and expertise with us during our recent visits. When a blind student leaves high school and goes to college, the world tilts a […]

Meanwhile, down in the gym, a dozen blind students were dissecting dog sharks! @ArapahoeCC

Deya and Alma with their Shark

These Denver high school students, Deya and Alma were two of the dozen middle school to college prep students who experienced all the sensory data of a spiny dog shark when they opened one up today at the Center. Well, except for taste. Thanks again to Arapahoe Community College’s Biology Professor Terry Harrison for leading […]

We’re open today, and sharks are on for tomorrow! The #BombCyclone has blown on by!

We’re open today, and sharks are on for tomorrow! The #BombCyclone has blown on by!

It was a relatively calm morning after yesterday’s Bomb Cyclone, with 8 to 12 inches of snow and extreme winds blowing the flakes sideways and into drifts. Admittedly we had to skate our way into the Center before eight this morning, climbing over ice boulders thrown onto the sidewalk along Prince Street by snowplows, but […]

Still Thick as Thieves, These CCB Alumni Reunite, Tell Their Stories & Offer Wise Counsel to Students

Anahit, Kathy, Bill and Julie 2019

Let there be no doubt – students at the Colorado Center for the Blind form lifelong friendships. Monday, three such friends reunited at the center Kathy Kudlick, Bill Lundgren and Anahit LaBarre. They are shown above standing in front of our tactile CCB logo, left to right, Anahit, Kathy, Bill and Director Julie Deden All […]

Who has snow blowers on their roof? McGeorge Mountain terrace Apartments does!

Who has snow blowers on their roof? McGeorge Mountain terrace Apartments does!

Okay, we haven’t been talking about this much, because it’s kind of stressful. But on January 11 the roof of the McGeorge Mountain Terrace Apartments began to leak. The leaks were massive, and the insurance adjuster traced them back to hail damage that would have occurred last summer. Water damaged the ceiling in all 12 […]

Our thanks to @RepJasonCrow for his visit & tour today!

Rep. Jason Crow visits with CCB Braille Class

We were honored to have freshman Congressman Jason Crow visit the Center this morning. Rep. Crow serves Colorado’s 6th District, which includes the Colorado Center for the Blind. Though he only had an hour, it was plenty of time to learn what we are about, and to meet our students and staff. He even got […]

It’s snowing in Littleton Today, & all our students, including our 5 new ones, made the trek to CCB! #ShareLittleton

It’s snowing in Littleton Today, & all our students, including our 5 new ones, made the trek to CCB!  #ShareLittleton

We expect no less. But it just goes to show that blind people are not afraid to travel in the snow, not even the new ones who come from such warmer states as South Carolina, Georgia and Arizona. Independence doesn’t depend on the weather! Pictured above is one of our hopeful goose-deterrants. We’re still holding […]

Happy New Year from the Colorado Center for the Blind!

Happy New Year from the Colorado Center for the Blind!

Yes, we got a little snow for the New Year, and a lot more cold! Temps dropped below zero in some places, but have been rising steadily since the ball dropped at midnight to start the New Year! Things are looking great for 2019, and we look forward to our students’ return on Friday, January […]

Ending the Year with a Holiday Party at CCB

Ending the Year with a Holiday Party at CCB

The Colorado Center for the Blind students, staff and seniors were deep into the holiday spirit for the final three weeks before the holiday break. We all wish the happiest of holidays to all in our CCB family! Even as this was being written, our Martial Arts teacher from ATA Karate Denver, Rachel, delivered a […]

Our students really dig in! #COGives18

Our students really dig in! #COGives18

Our students really dig in at the Colorado Center for the Blind. We don’t simply teach rote skills, but nurture the confidence and curiosity in our students to continue to problem-solve and learn new skills. That’s how they learn to “Take charge with confidence” so they can live their lives in pursuit of their dreams […]
