Housing & Community Development for Residents with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities

The Housing & Community Development for Residents with I/DD Report has been created to reflect the challenges, barriers, data results and next steps for the future in residential and support systems for residents in Arapahoe County, Douglas County, and City of Aurora in Colorado. Without immediate attention towards bridging gaps of lifespan support and housing for individuals with I/DD, there will be a continued traumatic displacement of persons with I/DD in more restrictive, expensive and inappropriate “next empty beds.” Not only does this hurt society’s wallet, but it impacts the societal heart from the loss of their presence and contribution as valuable community members. May this report prompt community awareness into action to ensure valuable residents with I/DD in Colorado can continue to find their place and be part of their community.
