Advocacy

Family Voices Colorado speaks on behalf of children and youth with special health care needs, their families, and the professionals who work with them at the policy level. Family Voices CO listens to families and understands the challenges they experience. We track trends and identify barriers in systems, then we create systems level change.

We gather family stories to share with state legislators and other decision-makers about how proposed laws or regulations are likely to affect the young people and families we serve, and we collaborate with other advocacy organizations to inform and mobilize the public.  We regularly partner with the ARCs, Colorado Center on Law and Policy, Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved, Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, Community Centered Boards, Covering Kids & Families, and liaisons at the Departments of Health Care Policy and Financing and Public Health and Colorado Department of health and Environment, to work for policy changes that to improve systems and services for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs.

Call us today if you would like to share your story or volunteer with us to make Colorado a better place for children and youth with special health care needs: 303-877-1747
