For more than 25 years, Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC) has been the leader in promoting sound public policy that benefits people with all types of disabilities. CCDC is a nonprofit member-driven organization (2,000+ members statewide) whose mission is to advocate for social justice for people with all types of disabilities. CCDC defends against discrimination, abuse, and neglect, and supports people with disabilities to be contributing and engaged members of society.
Probate Power is CCDC's social enterprise legal program. As part of its mission to advocate for and support people with disabilities, CCDC created Probate Power to provide special needs planning, estate planning, and probate administration services directly to the Colorado disability community.
Probate Power’s purpose is twofold: 1) to provide high-quality special needs planning, estate planning, and probate administration services to the Colorado disability community and other non-disabled clients and 2) to provide a revenue stream for CCDC, allowing the nonprofit organization to expand its other services to benefit more Coloradans with disabilities.
Probate Power focuses exclusively on special needs planning, estate planning, and probate administration services. These services include, but are not limited to, simple and complex wills, special needs trusts, revocable living trusts, financial power of attorney documents, uncontested guardianships/conservatorships, ABLE accounts, and advanced medical directives. Probate Power was founded on the premise that everyone, especially the Colorado disability community, deserves high-quality, practical, and affordable legal representation.
