Serving children ages 0-17, the CES Waiver helps children and families by providing services and supports that will help children establish a long-term foundation for community inclusion as they grow into adulthood.
Children who qualify for this waiver are entitled to ~$58,200 in services to benefit the children and families. Parents and/or guardians are able to allocate this funding to a variety of services and hire a caregiver to render the services. In many cases those who already know and love your child are the best caregivers for them (grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends, church friends, teachers, etc.).
We will hire those individuals, train, and pay them to provide the services you select for your child. Below is a list of services we support on this waiver!
We are able to have your caregiver that you selected and trust onboarded within 1 week!
Below is a list of services we support that your CES waiver funding will cover! You as a parent, guardian, grandparent, sibling, family friend, etc. can be hired on with Colorado Family Caregivers to provide these services and be paid for doing so!

Provided on a short-term basis, because of the absence or need for relief of those persons who normally provide care for the participant.
Once you have selected the individual you would like to serve as your caregiver, call us!

As caregivers ourselves, and parents to a daughter who has been on the waivers for years, we know it, we understand it, and we live it. Any questions that you have – reach out and we are happy to help!
