Ability Connection Colorado’s Community Update to COVID-19

Updated April 8, 2020:

We want to update you on our status of re-opening our programs. We are closely monitoring the recommendations of State of Colorado and the health and well-being of our community, clients, and team members continues to be our top priority.

As you may be aware the City & County of Denver has extended the Stay at home order until April 30th and Governor Polis has extended the order until April 26th. We know these times are very unsettling and we want to do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy. Therefore, we will follow the order through April 30th and are planning to re-open our Creative Options centers on Monday May 4th. Until this date, our Creative Options staff will continue to reach out to parents to provide resources and support. If there are any changes in the order, we would adhere to the guidance and modify our re-open date.

Our Statewide Family Support Programs: EMPOWER Colorado, Faith in Action, Guardianship Alliance of Colorado, Infantile Scoliosis Outreach Program (ISOP), and Parent to Parent of Colorado will continue to provide support and resources to our many families within the state via telecommunications until further notice.

Our Employment Works team will also continue their work with our clients via telecommunications and we are working with our community partners to align our strategies for re-opening offices. We will update our community with more details in the near future.

We have been very fortunate to continue to receive needed donations from Regis and other community members to help support our families in need.

If you care to make a donation to continue these efforts to support our organization, please contact Jennifer Peitzmeier at 303-691-9339 or Terri Armstrong at

We will continue to update this website with new information as it becomes available. You may also reach us at

Please remember to stay safe and connected during these times.
