Boulder County Seeking Input on Services for Those with Disabilities
Boulder County Housing and Human Services is seeking input from residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities who receive services from the county, as well as their families and service providers.
Information is being collected through online surveys that are available in English and Spanish and must be completed by Oct. 5.
The county plans to use survey results to improve services offered to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, according to a news release.
Additional ways to provide information also are available, including three community forums in Longmont:
• 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday at the St. Vrain Community Hub, 515 Coffman St.
• Noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday at the First Lutheran Church Parish House, 805 Third Ave.
• And one geared toward Spanish speakers at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the First Lutheran Church Parish House.
Anyone who is unable to attend the meetings or to complete the online survey can request an individual interview or a small group conversation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Much of the funding the county uses for programs and services comes from a $1.5 million mill levy voters approved in 2002. A majority of the funding supports programming by Imagine! a local nonprofit that provides education, therapy, work opportunities, leisure activities and other services.
Other agencies and organizations that receive funding include Boulder County Aging Services, the juvenile diversion program and the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office Community Justice Program.
