Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
Ability Connection Colorado serves people with disabilities and their families throughout the state of Colorado. Their programs offer inclusive, cutting edge educational opportunities, pathways to employment and support that allows people to thrive. The name change reflects the diversity of the people with disabilities that Ability Connection Colorado serves.
The cornerstone in which the organization was built will remain the same. Founded 67 years ago, Ability Connection Colorado has played an active role in many positive changes in the lives of over 40,000 Colorado families annually. “The decision to change the name of an organization with such history was undertaken carefully and deliberated with consideration for how to best serve our community,” stated Judy Ham, President and CEO of Ability Connection Colorado. “Ultimately, the name Ability Connection Colorado expands our capacity to execute our mission, realize our vision and create clear strategies for the future.”
Perhaps best known as the comedian who puts the “cerebral” in cerebral palsy, Josh Blue exploded onto the national comedy scene as the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and he knocks down stereotypes applied to people with disabilities with wit and charm. Who better than Josh to introduce the new name of an organization that has promoted inclusion and opportunity for 67 years.
