The Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC) is offering a free presentation from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on May 5, about how to access assistance to stay in your home and to remain active in your community. The event will be held at the The First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall in Salida.

Chisholm Park attractions include indoor and outdoor seating, rest rooms, a drinking fountain, a prep counter with a sink and a gas grill. Street parking out front also includes two Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible parking spaces and a walkway to the pavilion. A playground was added in 2014. Merrell Bergin photo

Presenter and Executive Director, Julie Reiskin, will:

  • Spotlight Medicaid services that many of us need as we get older.
  • Share available resources for people who have disabilities and age-related limitations.
  • Discuss upcoming changes and how you can get involved to share your voice and needs for future offerings.

So many people who could be receiving benefits that would improve their quality of life don’t know that they are eligible. For instance, did you know that you can have family members or friends be paid to help you with your personal care, homemaking, and more?

Register here. Call 719-239-0284 or email with any questions. If you require specific accommodations please call or email these needs by May 1.

This 90-minute presentation will include snacks and drinks. The First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, located at 7 Poncha Blvd. in Salida, has parking and is easily accessible.
