The Resource Exchange is a “Community Centered Board.” For more than four decades, Community Centered Boards (CCBs) have managed and delivered services to children and adults with developmental disabilities in partnership with private, community-based service agencies and providers. In 1963, Colorado statute authorized CCBs to be responsible for community services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, offering an alternative to institutionalization in state operated regional facilities. Currently there are twenty Community Centered Boards serving approximately 19,000 individuals and their families throughout Colorado.
As a Community Centered Board, TRE is responsible to determine eligibility, provide comprehensive case management and provide or purchase services and supports for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. TRE’s three-county service area includes El Paso, Park and Teller Counties.
