The Denver HALO Center, a nonprofit organization that serves at-risk youth in the local community, will no longer be associated with The HALO Foundation and will operate as a new entity known as the Heart & Hand Center for Youth and their Families.

Located in the Five Points area of Denver, the Heart & Hand Center will continue to provide warm meals, after school activities and support on week days to underprivileged Denver children, which it has done since 2008.

“As the HALO Denver Center evolved, so have the needs of the Five Points Community,” said Nikki Cady, president and founder. “We decided that our branch needed to focus our efforts at a local level and expand in order to support the families of Denver.”

More than 140,111 Coloradoans have a developmental disability. To celebrate Developmental Disability Awareness Month, The Arc of Colorado and the 11 chapters within it will hold a film festival on Tuesday, March 20 at the Denver Film Center.

“Too often people with developmental disabilities are marginalized in movies and on television,” said Marijo Rymer, Executive Director of The Arc of Colorado. “The film festival aims to raise their profile by showcasing works of all genres, featuring people who may learn, communicate, move, function and think differently.”

The film festival, which is titled “Achieve with Us,” will showcase films by and about people with developmental disabilities. This event marks the first opportunity for Coloradans to view some of the hundreds of films that feature accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities. The show times are at 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and will each feature seven different films that range from 2 minutes to 25 minutes.
