Today, it is one of Colorado’s 20 Community Centered Boards, designated as the sole provider of comprehensive services and support for approximately 150 adults and children with developmental disabilities in Crowley, Otero and Bent counties. Inspiration Field works with those individuals diagnosed with mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and numerous other developmental disabilities.

how it started

In 1964, children with developmental disabilities in Colorado’s Arkansas Valley did not attend public school. A group of parents wanted and needed a place for their children to be in school with others, where they could learn and become as independent as possible. This group of parents created the organization that is known today as Inspiration Field. Inspiration Field has been providing services since 1966 in an area covering 3,611 square miles.
