Welcome to The Resource Exchange!

We invite you to discover TRE through our website. Follow the links to learn our History, to meet our Board of Directors, and to familiarize yourself with our work.  Care to understand our funding?  You are but a click away.  Perhaps most of all, we hope you’ll reflect on TRE’s organizational values, our ‘DNA’ that informs every decision we take, every new service line we develop, every new relationship we make. 

At TRE, we strive to be nimble, relevant, responsive, innovative, transformative and entrepreneurial. We offer an array of lifespan services available for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities—check out those services by clicking on the What We Do link.  We also welcome opportunities to answer questions, to educate our community on the profound assets—people with intellectual and developmental disabilities—in our midst, and to create new partnerships throughout our State, our Country and indeed the world.  I hope you’ll feel free to call or e-mail us—you can reach me directly on 719.785.6403 or at
