Family Resources

Welcome to the Family Resources webpage! Families of our athletes play an important role in the accomplishments and growth of impact in Special Olympics Colorado. Special Olympics Colorado families are volunteers, speakers, coaches, fundraisers and supporters. Families of athletes are first-hand witnesses to the life-changing effects Special Olympics has on their child, sibling, or loved one.

Family Resources Mission Statement

Special Olympics Colorado aims to provide connections within the disability community by providing resources and opportunities for community outreach.

The listed resources have been provided to help our families and athletes find services and opportunities. This list has been vetted to ensure those listed specialize in services and opportunities explicitly for those with IDD and their families. Inclusion on this list does not mean they are endorsed by Special Olympics Colorado. If you have concerns with any of these providers or recommendations for additional providers, please contact Adrian Mora at

Family Input Council 

Have you heard of our Athlete Input Council? Well we are very excited to announce the addition of a Family Input Council (FIC)! We currently have 6 family members/caregivers who meet bi-monthly to discuss the ways in which we can improve family services, communication, and opportunities for the family members of our athletes. These members represent each region of our state as well as our Young Athletes Program. Learn more about them below!
