Mission Statement:

The mission of the Denver Metro CPRC is to inform and empower low-income, culturally and linguistically diverse families as advocates for their children with disabilities, age birth-26, to achieve meaningful participation in their schools and communities.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Our desire for our families is:
• That more parents be actively involved in decision making for their children’s education.
• That families learn their rights and their child’s rights under IDEA 2004 and will be able to navigate the special education system in a manner that is consistent with their cultural beliefs.
• For students to have access to the general curriculum and appropriate behavior supports.
• Increase parents of color as participants in leadership roles in the Denver Metro area.
• Under-served families have access to information and support in their native language.

Program History:

Over the past three years the Denver Metro Community Parent Resource Center (CPRC) has created a project of significance to address active parent participation in implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in the Denver-Metro area with the collaboration of numerous Colorado policy-making, advisory, and advocacy groups, as well as local grass-root organizations that support family empowerment to improve educational services for students with disabilities. All of our services are free to families and professionals.
