Outreach and Development Project
Support a holistic and supportive environment for people with developmental disabilities (DD) through inclusive community activities and skill-building programs.
Outreach and Development projects help small grassroots organizations become more established to support people in their communities. Projects focus on improving access to culturally competent supports and services.
Downs In Motion is building off its existing programs to develop new activities that support people with DD in the Hispanic community of El Paso County. The organization coordinates activities such as basketball, communication etiquette, expressive arts, golf, karate, leadership and advocacy, music, sewing, and silk screen printing. The organization is developing new activities through marketing and social media, resource fairs, and volunteer training initiatives.
