We are Ability Connection Colorado (formerly known as CP of Colorado)
Ability Connection Colorado serves people with disabilities and their families and welcomes people of all abilities. Our innovative programs offer inclusive, cutting edge educational opportunities, pathways to the personal satisfaction of employment and support that allows people to thrive in Denver and throughout the state of Colorado. Our goal is to identify every individual’s unique abilities and further their personal journey towards realizing their human potential. In life, no one is defined by what they can’t do. We CAN DO so much more than we can’t. With your support and the generosity of our Sponsors, Ability Connection Colorado served more than 40,000 Coloradans last year.
A Word from Judy Ham, Ability Connection Colorado President and CEO
In the 67 years since our Founding Mothers met by chance at Children’s Hospital, CP of Colorado played an active role in many positive changes in the lives of Colorado families. And, the next big change is … CP of Colorado is now Ability Connection Colorado. The decision to change the name of an organization with such history was undertaken carefully and deliberated with consideration for how to best serve our community. Ultimately, the name Ability Connection Colorado expands our capacity to execute our mission, realize our vision and create clear strategies for the future.
The same organization. The same vision to serve people with disabilities and all abilities in inclusive environments. The same mission to seek out abilities and support individual growth and thriving.
A new name. Ability Connection Colorado. Ability. Connection. Colorado. Each word on its own says a lot. Together, we hope you’ll agree that they say it all.
With gratitude, Judy Ham

Comedian Josh Blue Introduces Ability Connection Colorado
As the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, not to mention one of the most likable guys in comedy today, Josh Blue continues to knock down stereotypes applied to people with disabilities one laugh at a time. Who better than Josh to introduce the new name of an organization that has promoted inclusion and opportunities for 67 years.
