The Arc - Denver

about

The Arc of Denver advocates for people with cognitive disorders and children with special education needs. Common medical labels like aspergers, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and downs syndrome can be used to help us adapt or they can be abused to warehouse people. Our advocacy extends to the legislatures and state agencies, where we help them implement the practices our clients find most helpful. We educate service providers and government employees in best practices. Our advocacy helps families navigate a complex and sometimes capricious environment. For instance, parents can attend school hearings with an advocate who knows what questions to ask; their children will be spared illiteracy. Teens can have guidance in transitioning into the adult system of benefits, avoiding homelessness. Adults can learn how to self-advocate and build the lives of their choosing; they do not have to be jobless and alone. The Arc of Denver opens doors and changes lives.
