Do you enjoy using critical thinking skills to help others?
Want to make a difference in your community for people with disabilities?
Only have a limited amount of time each month to spare?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you’re invited to join
the Human Rights Committee (HRC)!
What is HRC?
Per Colorado statute, and Medicaid regulations, a Human Rights Committee is a volunteer advisory board who review the services and supports provided by paid caregivers to individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to ensure the civil rights of individuals with IDD are respected.
What are the qualifications of a committee member?
Per Colorado statute, the HRC must include a minimum of 3 parents and/or guardians of an individual with IDD, and at least 2 professionals with a background in behavioral development. Additional volunteers interested in advocating for the rights of individuals with IDD are also welcome.
Why should I join?
HRC is one of the most fulfilling ways to contribute to your community and advance fair and equal treatment for individuals with IDD. You have a unique opportunity to encourage others and impact services and supports for those served by TRE and surrounding agencies (Also, snacks and lunch are provided!)
When is HRC?
Currently, HRC meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month for approximately four-five hours; the materials to be reviewed during the meeting, and the schedule, are submitted electronically to you approximately 2 weeks prior to the HRC date.
Where is HRC?
HRC meets at TRE
418 S. Weber St. C/S, CO 80903

Doors of Colorado Springs
A door can represent so many things: it can open into an exciting new opportunity, provide a gentle welcome home, protect those inside from the elements or shield the mystery of what lies beyond it. Sometimes, for those in our community with an intellectual or developmental disability, a door represents a barrier or obstacle. And because every individual deserves to live a fulfilling, independent life and to participate in our community to the fullest extent of their dreams and capabilities, The Resource Exchange’s mission is to ensure as many doors as possible are open through an array of lifespan services available for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Through our programs and partnerships we strive to build partnerships with service providers across the intellectual and developmental disability spectrum as well as in the business and non-profit communities, weaving a comprehensive fabric of “doors” for our population to live the best life possible.
Unframed Posters – $20 each
Framed Posters – $50 each
All proceeds from the sale of the Doors of Colorado Springs go directly to programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
