About Adeo

Our name comes from the Latin word “adeo” (pronounced ah-DAY-oh), meaning “to this point” or “so far.” It carries 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.”

Since its founding in 1977 by Hope Cassidy, Adeo, formerly known as the Greeley Center for Independence, has sought to lift up the lives of people facing various health challenges, with a focus on brain injuries beginning in 2004. We are proud to offer full support for major life activities for people living with the residual impact of a brain injury, including housing, wellness, and opportunities for connection.

Our Vision

People with brain injuries leading connected, interdependent lives.

Our Mission

Adeo supports people with brain injuries and their families by providing services tailored to meet individual needs.
