Mesa Developmental Services

People Serving People with intellectual and developmental disabilities…

Mesa Developmental Services is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. We are what is called a Community Centered Board (CCB), which has been created and applied across Colorado to help connect people to services and supports via federal, state, county, and private funding. Mesa Developmental Services works within Mesa County as well as other regions on the Western Slope.

Our Roots…

The roots of our organization stretch back to 1966 when a few big-hearted people started a private nonprofit organization with the hope of helping people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Grand Junction. This humble project grew steadily into something truly extraordinary – a full-service organization known as Mesa Developmental Services (MDS).

PEOPLE FIRST

Our People First group is a self-advocacy organization that is comprised of people with learning difficulties, people with intellectual disabilities, people with developmental disabilities and/or people with disabilities who speak up for themselves and work to improve the lives of their members.
