Alliance is a non-profit, statewide association of Community Centered Boards (CCBs) and Service Provider Organizations (SPOs).  They are distinguished by their leadership and advocacy of member organizations and the individuals and families they serve.  Their efforts in the areas of public policy, state legislation, developmental disability initiatives, and demonstration of best practices have positioned them as the premier resource for organizations and individuals associated with Colorado’s Community Centered System of developmental disability services and supports.

Alliance was founded in 1973 as the Colorado Association of Community Centered Boards (CACCB).  In 2005 they changed their name to Alliance.  With the new name came a renewed commitment to quality community supports for people with developmental disabilities and their families in Colorado.  Over 12,000 people are served in Colorado’s Community Centered System.

Originally chartered in 1969 as the Philadelphia Alliance, the Alliance of Community Service Providers was formed to bring together agencies providing community mental health and mental retardation services to improve, participate in and help implement the planning and coordination of these services throughout the Philadelphia area; to strengthen the working relationships among member agencies and with the City of Philadelphia administration and other relevant governmental offices; to further the opportunity and ability of member agencies to contribute to the effective delivery of services to the City’s citizens affected by mental illness and intellectual disabilities. In 1989, the Philadelphia Alliance welcomed into its membership ranks organizations that are committed to assisting individuals with substance abuse needs.
