About PEAK Parent Center

Welcome! PEAK Parent Center is a nonprofit that works every day to ensure that all people with disabilities are fully included in their neighborhood schools, communities, employment, and all walks of life.

A Parent Center founded in 1986, PEAK offers an array of free and low-cost services to families of children with disabilities and self-advocates across Colorado and beyond. Each year, PEAK directly reaches more than 26,000 families, youth with disabilities/self-advocates, and educators.

PEAK Welcomes A New Executive Director

The PEAK Parent Center Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Michele Willers as Executive Director! Michele brings a wealth of expertise and knowledge in nonprofit leadership and community development along with a personal connection to our mission. She has 30 years of non-profit experience in community development in youth service organizations including 22 years in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBS) network. Michele replaces PEAK’s co-founder and Executive Director Barbara Buswell. Barb will remain on the PEAK Parent team as Co-Director of the Region D Parent Technical Assistance Center which PEAK oversees. Our staff and board members are very excited to combine the foundation which Barb has laid with Michele’s fresh vision and unique knowledge and skills!  This time of evolution in our organization is an opportunity for tremendous growth. Please join PEAK in welcoming Michele Williers!

Black Lives Matter

PEAK Parent Center stands in solidarity with the Black community. Inclusion, respect, social justice, and equity are core to our mission and values.  Please stand with PEAK. Take actions individually and collectively to address hidden biases and end racist thinking and violence. This moment in time requires everyone - including those of us who are not Black - to speak out, take a stand without compromising, and act with urgency to insist on ending behaviors that plague our country.
