PLEASE BE AWARE WE ARE UNABLE TO HANDLE EMERGENCIES

Advocacy Support and Help

We ask you to become a free member of our organization as it is only through membership we can continue our work. Membership allows you to stay informed about topics and information that are important to you. It also allows us to gather information about the needs of the community, letting us adjust our vision to stay consistent with the current environment. A growing membership also shows policymakers how many people believe in what we do, giving us greater leverage to make relevant changes. Thank you for your support.

We cannot guarantee assistance for every need.  If you are not a member, you only need to join (at no cost) here.

Please note:  We are NOT staffed to handle emergencies. If you need immediate health care, are hurt, or being victimized, immediately call 911. For mental health emergencies, call 1-844-493-TALK (8255), or you can text “TALK” to 38255. You will connect with the Colorado Crisis Services or go to www.Imalive.org to chat with a crisis counselor.

Before you call or fill out the form, answer this question: 

Is your issue about a benefit reduction, denial, or stoppage?  

If so, time is critical. Follow these instructions:

Watch these videos for step-by-step instructions on how to start an appeal.

  • Call the main office at 303.839.1775 and
  • Email our Director of Appeals and Eligibility, Donna Sablan at dsablan@ccdconline.org.
  • In your email, you must indicate that you have an appeal issue and have submitted a request for help through our website.

If you need an accommodation to speak with us, such as a sign language or a foreign language interpreter, we will arrange to have someone available for the intake interview. Your need for an interpreter does not determine whether or not we take your case.

Our advocacy team consists of trained, Non-attorney advocates (WE ARE NOT ATTORNEYS). All advocates are trained to act as your voice, ensure your rights are not violated, and help you understand all your options.  We help exclusively with disability-related problems and specialize in access to healthcare.
