About
Advocacy Denver is a non-profit, civil right advocacy organization serving children, teens with disabilities and adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities — and their families.
Our Work
We provide an active voice to those seeking assistance, guidance, access and support in areas of education, health care, legal services, housing, transportation or financial guidance. Where other organizations focus on creating adaptive opportunities with existing programs or services, we concentrate on listening and providing support based on the individual’s needs, choices or objectives.
Our primary goal is to help individuals and families secure the specific opportunities they are seeking while simultaneously working with other organizations and government agencies to create policy change for the constituents we serve.
We work directly with adults and children to help them face a wide variety of personal challenges related to developmental or intellectual disabilities. We also fight for them on a systemic level, providing counsel and recommendations for Colorado policymakers who can positively impact our constituency.
We offer comprehensive solutions that help individuals with disabilities find the right balance of support and independence for fulfilled, satisfying lives. As the individuals, families and organizations with whom we work find confidence, self-respect and accomplishment, our communities benefit and thrive.
Our History
Advocacy Denver, a local affiliate of the Arc National organization, was originally known as “The Arc of Denver.” The organization was founded in 1954 by a group of parents of children with cognitive disabilities and was one of the first Arcs in the United States. The Arc of Denver formally changed its name to Advocacy Denver in 2009. Since its inception, Advocacy Denver has been fully committed to ensuring that Denver County residents with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their families have access to integrated supports and systems that ensure that they are able to lead healthy, active lives in the community.
What is “Advocacy”?
Advocacy is defined by princeton.edu as the active support of an idea or cause, etc.; especially the act of pleading or arguing for something. Here at Advocacy Denver, we support our constituents by listening to and learning about their individual needs and by assisting them in navigating the complex systems of available benefits.

Advocates for Victims of Assault was founded in 1979, out of a need to support victims of domestic violence. As our community has grown we have expanded our services to include victims of sexual assault, stalking, and other trauma. Local law enforcement our hospital, and community members continue to use our confidential 24-hour crisis hotline and advocacy services as a critical resource. In 1996, we opened our first safe house, which has consistently been occupied by survivors in crisis seeking refuge. Advocates is open to all. Regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, immigration status, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity or gender expression, marital status, religion, veterans status, disability, genetic information or any other status protected through ordinance or law…you are welcome here.
Our advocacy services include assistance in navigating the legal system, referrals to community resources, and information about the dynamics typically present in violent relationships.
In the effort to reduce violence in our community we provide outreach and education in our local schools, businesses, and to the general public. We also work closely with the criminal justice system to increase accountability for perpetrators, and to ensure that the rights of victims are respected
