The Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition is excited to announce they have received a $40,000 Community Enrichment Grant from the Adams County Foundation! The grant is from now until the end of December 2018. We are working to expand our outreach to assist people and society to support those with severe disabilities who live in Adams County to pursue community-based, independent living.
CCDC is offering individual assistance in your community ranging from navigating complicated service systems to advocacy for people denied life-sustaining benefits. The assistance focuses on helping individuals with severe disabilities get the resources, training, and supports leading to increased self-sufficiency.
We are also scheduling free mini-workshops at a community space near you. Our Much and Learn flyer is below, and we’ll also be happy to come out to your organization, school, library, etc. and tell you about CCDC’s services. Choose a workshop on probate, service animals, independent living or Medicaid for your group and you can request a scholarship to attend CCDC’s extensive 9-week Basic Advocacy training program (both online or live at the University of Denver) to teach volunteers how to offer community resource and referral support services to people with disabilities.
We also train staff from nonprofit partner organizations such as the Asian Pacific Development Center, the ARC of Adams County and other community-based nonprofits, as well as government agencies on how to work with clients with disabilities, provide effective communication, and comply with ADA regulations.
Please give us a call at our Main Office 303-839-1775 and ask for Stacy, Lucinda, or Angela. We can discuss the valuable advocacy and education opportunities CCDC can offer you and your community!
