This Community Resource Directory has been prepared to help CPCD families identify available resources. CPCD has a commitment to help provide services for our families or to refer those families to the appropriate agency for needed services.
Although we attempt to cover all areas of need, we cannot list all agencies serving this area. If you have specific needs which are not covered by this directory, please contact 2-1-1 Colorado (dial 2-1-1), a statewide information and referral service, to access health and human services. You may also contact CPCD's Family Services Department at (719) 635-1536 for further information.
The information presented in this directory is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication.
