The Arc Pikes Peak Region


What

Discrimination, as well as a lack of awareness, often inhibits access to basic human rights for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, limiting their opportunity to participate in society. The Arc PPR’s Building for Change campus actively empowers those with I/DD through personal development, life skills training, and advocacy, while inviting the community to improve the culture for those with I/DD.

Why

Discrimination toward people with disabilities makes it difficult to access basic human rights, and they will likely struggle with poverty, abuse, loneliness, homelessness and more. Access to advocacy, supports and skills training is crucial for these people to participate in their communities and achieve goals. The Arc PPR receives no federal funding, while most of our program funding comes from arc Thrift Stores.

Needs

Disability library resources (books, videos, etc); landscaping sponsorships for new personal development center; volunteer program instructors (culinary, nutrition, job skills); board members

“The Arc's advocacy services have provided support and taught me how to negotiate a higher quality of education and life for my child with a disability. I can't express enough how much I recommend them. The Arc makes a positive, far-reaching impact.” — Daniel, father of educational advocacy recipient
