Community Outreach Department
The Community Outreach Department was developed in July of 2012 and includes the Community Outreach and Family Support Programs. The department serves as a venue for 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 entire 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. Individuals, families, professionals, and the community join together in this process designed to address health and safety concerns, respond to emergencies, or simply enhance the quality of life for qualifying individuals.
