A Brighter Community is an award-winning Program Approved Service Agency in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, where adults with developmental and intellectual dis-ABILITIES receive person-centered services from a devoted and caring staff.  We are regulated by the State of Colorado Department of Healthcare, Policy & Finance and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment.  We also work closely with Community Centered Boards and other social services agencies.

A Brighter Community is a labor of love by two women who invested everything they had to realize their dream of providing a meaningful life to exceptional people.  ABC was created by Robin Sattel, MS, a disability advocate, author, and mother of two with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and Leah Martin, PhD, an author and passionate believer in the inherent worth of all people - especially our amazing participants, who we call our friends.  Robin and Leah have hand-picked the cream-of-the-crop to staff our programs so that our friends may receive safe, stimulating, and edifying services that help them to achieve a high level of independence and sense of fulfilment and purpose.  One of ABC's hallmarks is that we focus on developing true and naturally-occurring  friendships that enrich our lives.


The entire team endeavors for ABC to be the Gold Standard in person-centered services.
