To enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities/delays by partnering to provide expertise, support, and advocacy in their pursuit of a meaningful life.
In 1963, Colorado statute authorized Community Centered Boards (CCBs) to be responsible for community services for individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental delays.
Currently, there are 20 CCBs across the state. As a CCB, Developmental Pathways determines eligibility and provides programs for persons with intellectual disabilities and developmental delays in our service area.
Developmental Pathways was originally established in 1964 as a community-based alternative to institutional care. Since that time, Developmental Pathways has developed a broad array of services based on our mission to enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental delays by providing opportunities to lead a meaningful life.
Developmental Pathways has become integral in my life, ensuring that I have transportation to my doctor and dentist appointments, helping me shop for groceries with the aid of King Soopers, and managing my finances.
Cooking is one of my favorite activities and I enjoy my community potluck dinners.
"I feel fortunate to have food and a roof over my head," "I appreciate all the help my Pathways caseworker gives me. She even arranged my visit to see my mom in Kansas."
