In FY20, Developmental Pathways launched our Community Engagement Initiative with the idea to involve the broader community with partnerships and education to address internal and external systems change that will positively impact the IDD community.
In FY21, we expanded the work to create the Community Engagement Department, which continues to oversee and expand on the work identified by the Community Engagement Initiative. We want to build a stronger community by focusing on building, improving, and advancing local programming that helps us support a cohesive, connected, resourced, disability community. Key pursuits include:
- Direct monies to individuals/families
- Direct monies to providers in support of individuals and families
- Agency-level work to strengthen IDD/delay outcomes for our community
Within the Community Engagement Department, is the Community Outreach Waitlist Program, which serves as a support to individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities and Delays (I/DD’s) and their families with unmet needs living in Douglas or Arapahoe Counties, including the city of Aurora. County Mill Levy funds, state funds, grants, and donations are used to assure that any person waiting for services has the opportunity to connect with systems or supports to meet their specific needs.
