  • Mission:
  • Cheyenne Village helps people with disabilities lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

  • Overview:
  • For 42 years, Cheyenne Village has served adults with developmental disabilities (DD) such as mental retardation, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and autism. It is the only locally founded and governed nonprofit of its kind in the Pikes Peak Region.

    * Over 70% of the individuals we serve fall below the Federal Poverty Guidelines which means their incomes are $10,890 or less.

    * Last year enrollment grew by seven percent. (330 individuals served)

    * Sixty-two percent of those receiving comprehensive residential services are 50 years old or older.

    * Thirty-six percent have been involved with Cheyenne Village for 20 years or more.

    * Roughly one-third have little or no family involvement which means that Cheyenne Village is not only their home, but is also their family.

    Cheyenne Village provides 24/7 comprehensive services for adults with developmental disabilities and goes above and beyond what Medicaid and government funding provides. In addition, Cheyenne Village offers supported living services to individuals who have the ability to live somewhat independently or who have family members who are the primary caregiver. Examples of the types of services provided are: healthcare assistance, financial management, and benefits coordination.

  • History:
  • Until the 1970's, children and adults with developmental disabilities (DD) were hidden from society and many were institutionalized. Peggy Marshall and her husband, Colorado Springs Mayor Andrew Marshall, had a child with a developmental disability, and they wanted a better life for their daughter.

    In 1967, after years of extensive research on mental retardation, Mrs. Marshall formed a private, non-profit corporation to establish a training program for adults with developmental disabilities in cooperation with various human services agencies and other concerned parents and citizens.

    Cheyenne Village was founded in 1971 on the site of historic McLaughlin Lodge in Manitou Springs, CO

    The first 12 clients were taught self-care, basic living, and job skills by continuing to operate the lodge along with support from Cheyenne Village staff. Cheyenne Village was the first agency to be licensed by the Colorado Department of Health and Department of Social Services. Early on, Cheyenne Village became a nationally recognized and replicated model.

    Today, Cheyenne Village serves 330 individuals with developmental disabilities living all across the Pikes Peak Region in a variety of locations including; apartments, host homes and group homes (of the 330 individuals receiving services, only 23 live in supervised group homes). Because of a solid reputation and sound fiscal management, Cheyenne Village has been able to increase enrollment and expand services in spite of a highly challenging regulatory and funding environment.
