About Adeo

A nonprofit dedicated to people with disabilities, since 1977.

Greeley Center for Independence is now Adeo.

The word “adeo” (pronounced ah-DAY-oh) is Latin, meaning “to this point” or “so far.” It carries with it a sense of hope, forward movement, and encouragement for progress now and into the future. It’s why we rally around the motto “life, elevated.”

Adeo takes flight, unencumbered, in our logo. A bird, a mountain, an upward arrow of inspiration and aspiration, our icon was created to convey the feeling of our organization.

Our founder, Hope Cassidy, had that sense of positive encouragement in her name. It was her goal that everyone live as full a life as possible. She realized early on that people with disabilities who wish to participate in the life of the community need a variety of services, personalized to their specific needs.

Our Approach

Adeo offers a multi-faceted approach to our support. Our services include affordable and accessible housing, home health care, outpatient physical therapy, as well as highly individualized residential services for those with brain injuries.

Our new Adeo fitness center, opening soon, welcomes everyone, at every level of ability—whether you are just beginning your fitness journey or are an experienced athlete who needs a rigorous fitness regimen. All proceeds go toward our mission of community support for people with disabilities.

Adeo Vision: People with disabilities leading connected, interdependent lives.

Adeo Mission: We support people with disabilities by providing services tailored to meet individual needs.

Affordable, Accessible Housing

Adeo owns and operates Hope Apartments, an outstanding apartment community that is  designed for low-income, mild to moderately disabled individuals.

Brain Injury Services

Adeo is licensed to provide Supportive Living Services and Independent Living Skills to adults with brain injuries. Stephens Farm opened its doors in 2002 and consists of 18 single-occupancy apartments, 10 of which are dedicated to those who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.

Trusted, Quality Home Health Care

Our team of licensed healthcare professionals provides compassionate, reliable and personalized home health care in the comfort of our clients’ homes, allowing them to live as independently as possible, thereby improving their quality of life.

Physical Therapy

Our highly trained therapists help patients reduce pain, improve physical function and maximize their physical well-being. We offer trigger point dry needling, cupping, treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction and individualized rehabilitation programs to ensure they meet their goals. Aquatic therapy is available in our heated pool.

Fitness

Unlike many large fitness clubs and gyms, Adeo Fitness offers a comfortable environment to continue or return to fitness. Our classes and workouts can be modified to meet and challenge our clients at their current level—from novice to experienced—while giving them the chance to be part of a positive and supportive community.
