Begin your journey of empowerment with us today!  All our services are FREE to families!







EMPOWER COLORADO is an organization run by families; we offer support, education, advocacy and resources to families with children and youth who have social, emotional or mental health challenges.


Families are stronger when they unite; it is the same for us.  We have formally partnered with other organizations; each has a unique focus and expertise so by working together we are more able to help families with their many different needs as well as reducing the number of outside referrals.
