The Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) is committed to providing behavioral health providers with additional guidance and resources throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency. This webpage will serve as the hub for all COVID-19-related information from OBH.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, DVP will be canceling some on-site visits that were planned to occur prior to September 30, 2020. In lieu of on-site visits, DVP team members will conduct virtual site visits for any organization more than a day trip away (about 120 miles) from Denver. DVP will offer the option of virtual visits for organizations closer to Denver if they prefer not to meet in person at this time. Learn more by clicking below.
Domestic violence services are essential services and Gov. Jared Polis has stated that survivors of domestic violence can leave their homes in order to call, text or chat for support, or find temporary safe housing.
In March, DVP highlighted the ACRTI goal of The Initiative, in Denver CO. In addition to that interview with Executive Director Ashlee Lewis, we are pleased to also share The Initiative’s Latinx Marketing Plan that aligns with their goal to increase language access for survivors in need of their services.
DVP receives questions every month about financial, data, and contract requirements. Because of this, we have created four, closed-captioned webinars for people in funded organizations to watch to learn more about these requirements.
Is your organization still deciding on your ACRTI goal for FFY20? Need some inspiration? Look no further! We asked representatives from organizations across Colorado to answer some of the following questions about their goal-setting process:
What is the goal statement your organization created? Do you feel that this goal is specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, and time-bound?
How did your organization end up selecting this area for your goal?
How do your coworkers feel about this goal?

Recently, the DVP team reached out to funded organizations just to see how everyone was doing. Our main purpose was to see how the staff were doing, learn about adjustments to services being offered, inquire about financial impacts, and to be available for any questions.
