Message From The Program Administrator

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thanks for your interest in volunteering. To give one’s valuable time and talent for a good cause without seeking reward is an act of selflessness. It gives you a special feeling undeniably and will enrich the overall quality of life to the disabled community and older adults living in and frequenting business establishments in Denver.

To all the volunteers who are or have given their time to the Accessible Parking Program your commitment, your quality of service to this great city of Denver is greatly appreciated and is invaluable. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for sharing your goodness and works and for being an inspiration to us all!
