Ways You Can Make A Difference!

Experience is an integral part of our lives. We do our best to ensure that individuals have the opportunities to experience unique and memorable events that lead to meaningful and joyful lives.


Holidays- “Big Hearts”

Donation $100
Not everyone gets to celebrate their favorite holiday with a gift exchange. This plan will allow one individual to receive well chosen and meaningful gifts this holiday. They will also have the opportunity to choose a few small gifts to give to their loved ones. We recognize the importance of giving.

Summer Camp

Donation $450
Camp is something that a large number of individuals look forward to every year. Unfortunately, they don’t always get to go due to limited funds. Your donation allows one camper to enjoy a whole week in the beautiful Colorado mountains.

Pizza Party

Donation $75
Who doesn’t enjoy a hot, cheesy pie right from the oven? Your donation allows for one supreme pizza party following an FAC event. Our group loves pizza, and it disappears fast!

Holiday Party/Awards Ceremony

Each year CLA has been fortunate enough to plan two music and fun filled gatherings. It’s a great opportunity for the entire staff to visit with the host home and direct support staff providers who work so hard, and with the service recipients that we never seem to see enough! Your donation in any amount helps us serve a delicious and comforting meal, as well as, distribute awards to those who have gone above and beyond.

Special Projects

At any given point we have several progressive and creative projects underway that are designed to make a significant difference in the lives of our service recipients. Contact us to learn more about these projects, or suggest one of your own. Your donation will go directly towards the completion of that project.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us sustain and improve the quality of our programs and continue to enrich the lives of the people we serve.  Your support of the work we do will directly impact the lives of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, helping them become more independent while enjoying a higher quality of life. If you would like to become a Corporate Partner, please contact us for further information.

Please consider making a donation in any amount through PayPal, or we can accept your donation in the form of cash, check, credit card, stock/securities. Choose the way to donate that is easiest for you!  All monies raised will stay within the agency and support our growing programs.
