Chayla has been working in the social services field since 2000. Prior to founding The Hope Link, Chayla was the Vice President of Operations for a Medicaid Waiver Provider where she worked for over 11 years. Chayla’s experience extends from direct care to upper levels of administration and management. Chayla has a passion for working with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Her goal is to take the information that she acquired over these years to help educate employees, provide personal support to families and help individuals learn to advocate for themselves as well as learning various life skills.
Lara’s interest in serving individuals with disabilities began with working the summer youth program at Cardinal Learning Center and then beginning her college studies in Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado. Her education was interrupted but was later resumed and she received her Bachelor’s and served populations with mental illnesses as a behavioral counselor for 14 years. For the past 7 years she has been working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities that are being served through the Medicaid Waiver, as well as offering guidance and support to the families of these individuals.
We understand that every individual, and every family, has unique needs. Our goal is to provide the best quality of services possible while focusing on Family, Community and Connections for individuals receiving services.CONTACT US
