DISABILITY Financial Resources

Public Funding


Colorado has twelve Medicaid Waiver Programs to help children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  These programs are administered at the state level by the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) and at the county level by Community Centered Boards or Single Point Entry Agencies.

To learn more about the Medicaid Waivers in Colorado, please see our Colorado's Medicaid and Disability Page.


The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources.  Social Security Income (SSI) is very different from SSDI (Social Security Disability Income) which is for adults who become disabled after working and contributing to social security benefits.

Colorado Lions CLubs

The Lions Club gives direct financial help to individuals who need help with hearing, vision care or glasses.

Family Support Funds

The Family Support Fund is a state funded program to provide individualized supports to families who are caring for a family member with developmental disabilities/delays (age 3 plus), including connecting them with resources and providing limited financial help.  These funds are administered by the Community Center Board in your area.  Inquire about your family's eligibility.




At Friends of Man, every dollar contributed by donors goes directly to aid individuals and families in need of assistance. All operating expenses of the charity are paid by the volunteers through their donations to the Institute for the New Man. Referring Professionals (health care and social workers, clergy, counselors, teachers, etc.) submit applications on behalf of people in need of assistance.
