Providing grants to address the unmet needs of Southern Colorado’s children and young adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Life's journey can be difficult...

Disabling Barriers stands ready to assist in that journey. From infancy to young adulthood, we all face challenges. For some, those challenges are profoundly more difficult. That’s why Disabling Barriers’ goal is to seek out unmet needs and fill those gaps to support children and young adults with disabilities.
