ALLIANCE COLORADO

Alliance is a nonprofit, statewide association of Community Centered Boards (CCBs) and Service Provider Organizations (SPOs).We are distinguished by our leadership and advocacy of member organizations and the individuals and families they serve. Our efforts in the areas of public policy, state legislation, developmental disability initiatives, and demonstration of best practices have positioned us as the premier resource for organizations and individuals associated with Colorado's Community Centered System of developmental disability services and supports. 

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR DOWN SYNDROME

NADS is the oldest organization in the country serving individuals with Down syndrome and their families. It was founded in Chicago in 1961 by parents who chose to go against medical advice and raised their children with Down syndrome at home. Their pioneering efforts have made it easier for later generations of individuals with Down syndrome to be accepted by their families and communities, to develop their capabilities, and to work towards independence. Our mission is to ensure that all persons with Down syndrome have the opportunity to achieve their potential in all aspects of community life. We offer information, support, and advocacy.
