The Arc Pikes Peak Region


What

Due to discrimination, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (/DD) often have little opportunity to participate in society, inhibiting access to basic human rights. The Arc PPR’s Building for Change campus will help those with I/DD to be empowered together through personal development, life skills training, and expanded advocacy efforts, while involving the community in improving the culture.

Why

Societal discrimination toward people with disabilities makes it difficult for them to access basic human rights, making them vulnerable to poverty, abuse, loneliness, homelessness and more. Access to advocacy, supports and skills training is crucial for these people to participate in their communities. The Arc PPR receives no federal funding, while the majority of program funding comes from arc Thrift Stores.

Needs

In-kind building donations (appliances, furniture); volunteer program instructors (culinary, nutrition, job skills, budgeting, fitness & others); volunteers (fundraising, administrative, events)
