Power To The People

With probate power, Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition helps people with disabilities and their families plan for the future.

People who live with disabilities, and their families, now have one more resource in the community, thanks to a new program from Colorado Cross­Disability Coalition (CCDC). Probate Power is a new service that provides special needs planning, estate planning, and probate administration services directly to the Colorado disability community and nondisabled individuals in need of such services.

Probate Power is CCDC's social enterprise legal program, developed with support from the Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Exchange. Probate Power was founded on the premise that everyone, especially the Colorado disability community, deserves high-quality, pragmatic, and affordable legal representation.

"The goal of Probate Power, first and foremost, is to always make sure our clients know they have a voice," says Chris Brock, Managing Attorney of Probate Power. "Having a legal team that knows the questions to ask, the nuances, and how the system works?specific to the disability community ?is crucial."

Probate Power is committed to providing culturally competent and personalized legal guidance that helps individuals and families protect their assets and their loved ones. For more information, please visit the Colorado Cross­Disability Coalition website, ccdconline.org.
