Colorado program participants are the elderly, individuals with development and intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, spinal cord and brain injury and behavioral health needs, who prefer to remain in their homes and active within their communities as opposed to restrictive institutional and agency model options.

Why Public Partnerships Colorado?

Public Partnerships is privileged to announce that we continue to be reappointed by the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy in 2009, 2015 and now in 2019. We continue to service participants on the Consumer Directed Attendant Support Services (CDASS) program and we are thrilled to be a part of Colorado!

Nearly 70%

of all CDASS programs Coloradan’s currently self-direct their care, trusting and relying on us to pay their attendants.

Self-directing the care you need or that or that of a loved one IS a BIG decision!

It allows you to focus on living your life in a way that gives you or your loved one the greatest choice and control that you want. All while, Public Partnerships focuses on paying your attendants for the services you need and managing their taxes.
