Film Fest Celebrates IDD Awareness Month
The Achieve With Us Colorado Film Fest, organized by The Arc of Colorado with 13 local Arc chapters, and made freely available through the sponsorship of many entities, including DDRC, was a moving, eye-opening and not-to-be missed event! The film fest is organized as part of IDD Awareness Month in March.
DDRC and friends were there to enjoy connecting with a great crowd and shared the experience of seeing Far From the Tree, one of many films featured during the festival. Based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name by Andrew Solomon, the film was a powerful and beautiful exploration of all the ways it means to be a “normal family.”
Be sure to mark your calendars to come next year!
DDRC Self Determination Grants Open DoorsPublished: March 21, 2019
DDRC’s Self Determination Funds are awarded to help individuals with IDD get unique supports to pursue their dreams and lead fuller lives. Funding is available to those residing in Jefferson County. Grants may cover things such as therapy, employment supports, social connections and life coaching. A committee of community and DDRC representatives review the requests for funds to determine if the circumstances warrant approval.

FirstBank Brings "Banking for Good" to LifePublished: June 13, 2018
Ron Lindsey (L), Harold Dickerson (C), and Cody Widiger (R), employees of FirstBank,
volunteer with the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center
With an uplifting and bold tagline emblazoned on their tee shirts, three guys from FirstBank flexed their muscles and fired their brain cells to show that “Banking for Good” is more than a company slogan, it is a company culture that encouraged them to volunteer with the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center, and help those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Dogs Donations and DisabilitiesPublished: May 1, 2018
Just ask one of our steadfast donors, Heidi Markley, who has contributed proceeds from her dog and house-sitting service, Angels and Unicorns, to support the work of DDRC year-after-year, and often several times a year. Heidi had a child in service with DDRC and she saw the crucial importance of respite care and its benefits for both the family and the individual in service. She donates to help support respite care through DDRC’s Shannon and Bill Markley Respite Fund.
