Our future

We’re constantly looking ahead to see how we can best serve our neighbors. Find out what’s in the future for envida and how you can help.

ALWAYS GROWING

A new brand for new efforts

At the end of 2017, we began a rebrand and renaming project with local design agency, Design Rangers. While the Amblicab name served us well, we felt it was time to develop a name that supported our desire to grow and expand our services. The word envida, rooted in Latin, translates to mean “together in life.”

We believe that life is lived most vibrantly when we come together as a community. 

TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

Our partnerships

We are a part of a strong network of transportation and healthcare providers as well as business and community organizations throughout Colorado, including the following:

We support a vibrant life at every age and stage

At envida, we believe that everyone deserves to live a vibrant life. We support independence for older adults, low-income individuals, and those with disabilities—providing affordable transportation and in-home support services.

WE CAN'T DO IT ALONE

The funders who support us

As a nonprofit, we are proud to work closely with numerous local, state, and federal agencies for funding our programs and initiatives.

our plan

Three key areas of focus

Provide cost-effective alternatives to assisted living

Because of the growing need for alternatives to skilled nursing facilities, envida is responding with affordable solutions that help keep our neighbors at home.

Introduce new technology to support an older audience

As one of the first transportation organizations to implement this technology, we’re paving the way to make it easier for our clients to schedule rides. 

Eliminate transportation as one of the top barriers to health care

For older adults, low-income and those needing behavioral health treatment – transportation can often prevent them from receiving health care.

SAFE TO RIDE: A letter from our Executive Director

The COVID-19 virus has impacted everyone. Here at envida, we have remained open as an essential transportation and homecare business, supporting our governor’s “stay at home” order and now “safer at home.” As restrictions begin to lift, we are taking every precaution to ensure our clients and riders are safe. Most importantly, we want to communicate to our riders that it is SAFE to RIDE.

Our drivers wear gloves and masks, and we request that riders have masks or scarves. We have installed antimicrobial film on interior bus surfaces that require a high degree of hygiene. We disinfect vehicles after each rider, and we will open windows for fresh air, weather permitting. We have expanded service hours to meet riders’ needs: We are open from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Our rural routes along U.S. Highway 24 and S.H. 94 have re-opened; the Calhan route operates Monday through Thursday, and the Ellicott/Yoder route operates Wednesdays and Fridays. We have also begun serving Teller County to help those with medical and behavioral health needs access healthcare providers in Colorado Springs.

Additionally, for our home care clients, we offer telehealth visits and our homecare attendants have been well versed on how to keep themselves and clients safe. For more information on telehealth visits, please call 719-301-6870.
