Welcome to Chinook
Chinook is a program of Mental Health Partners, dedicated to enhancing the recovery of men and women with mental illnesses. It provides opportunities for members to live, work, learn, and socialize while contributing their talents in a community of mutual support.
Chinook works with the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to offer transitional employment opportunities.
Work is at the heart of our program, driven by the philosophy that it restores a person's dignity, self-respect and independence. For each member that comes through Chinook's doors, we believe in their future, success, hopes, dreams and happiness.
By working together in the daily operations of Chinook's pre-vocational opportunities, we build relationships that help members regain their lives and develop a picture of a successful future.
45-50 members come to Chinook each day. There are about 65 members working full/part time in the community and approximately 135 attend Chinook on a monthly basis. Over the past 14 years, over 1000 adults with mental illness have been served.
