No Barriers strives to provide impactful, challenging, and enjoyable experiences for Veterans with disabilities.  The No Barriers Warriors Essential Eligibility Criteria (EEC) is a checklist of physical, mental, and emotional requirements needed to attend a No Barriers Warriors program.  These are not intended to be exclusionary, but a resource for veterans with disabilities when considering if a Warriors program is the right fit for them.  Please review the following information, and make sure that when expressing interest in a certain Warriors program, you are well informed on the challenges and requirements for that specific program.  You should be able to check every box not only as able, but also willing.

If you have questions about the No Barriers Warriors Essential Eligibility Criteria, please contact Nate Gillette at [email protected] or 970-484-3633 ext.311.
