About the Denver Metro Chapter:  Managed by dedicated volunteers, Kim and Eric Hornak. 
We open our community to all of those who have some connection or interest in ADHD; including parents, caregivers, adults with ADHD, spouses, professionals and educators. 
Please come join us, learn together, share together!

Denver-Metro CHADD Mission:  To bring together a collaborative community through support, awareness, resources and education to help shape the future of our society by supporting those impacted by ADHD so they may build on their strengths, realize their full potential and foster the contribution of their talents back to their communities. 


Please let other's know who might benefit from our group! JOIN US! at Meetup.com! 
Meetup provides a dynamic member site for member interaction, connection, discussion as well as meeting notifications and reminders! And it's FREE!

Meetings are FREE, though CHADD groups are financially supported by memberships and donations, so we kindly ask you to consider joining CHADD or donating online to help support our mission in improving the lives of those affected by AD/HD.  Your CHADD membership or donation will help support the Denver-Metro Chapter!

RESOURCES and MEMBERSHIP

Do you need information and resource help? As a volunteer, we try to respond as quickly as possible to all requests about our local CHADD group.

However, if you have a more pressing need for information or assistance about the many aspects of dealing with AD/HD (including diagnosis, treatment options, educational rights, etc.), please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on AD/HD (NRC), online at www.help4adhd.org or by phone at 800-233-4050 (press option 2, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern time).  

The NRC is staffed by trained Health Information Specialists who can answer many of your questions about AD/HD and provide other helpful information and resources.  (NOTE: although the NRC does not provide legal, medical or other professional advice, Specialists can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).

Community resources and national resources:  We have a list of local non-profit organizations, national organizations and CHADD professional and organizational members who have requested to be in our directory in the area in the links section.


Donations (tax deductible) and CHADD membership fees 
  • Parent training:  CHADD's Parent to Parent training on AD/HD. The entire course takes about 14 hours of time and is usually offered as a seven-week class, meeting for two hours once a week. Participants receive extensive materials to support them, including articles, reference materials, handouts, and homework assignments.  There is a fee for the class and it is only available to CHADD members.  You can join CHADD when you register for the class or you can join CHADD online or by calling 800-233-4050.

Disclaimer:  CHADD does not endorse or represent products, services, publication, medications or treatments.
New to AD/HD or CHADD?

**If you are not a CHADD member, or are new to CHADD, 
please register your contact information with CHADD so that we can contact you about local activities.  Your privacy is protected and will not be used for any other purpose except to contact you about CHADD programs and activities.  When you register with CHADD, you will be added to our e-mail address list.  You may opt-out at any time.


Volunteer Opportunities:

VOLUNTEERS:   Do you want to help, but can only offer a couple hours a month of your time?  We have some positions that are perfect for you.

HOST TEAM MEMBER: Meeting greeters.  You help to make newcomers feel welcome, assist members with sign-in, snacks, handout and membership information.  You can also assist with donations and membership fees at the meetings.  Come at 6PM, prior to the start of the meeting to be a greeter!


EDUCATORS and/or PSYCHOLOGISTS interested in "School ReachOut":  It has been our desire to encourage educators to attend our meetings and learn more about ADHD.  Because their time is valuable and they are not always available to attend our meetings, we would like to take our information to them.  If you are someone who can offer some time to take a "20-min prepared" PPT presentation to the schools for ADHD Awareness and Education, please let us know!

COMMITTEE LEADERS:  Planning Denver-Metro CHADD Community Fun Group and Family Activities, fundraisers, Membership Drives, Awareness Events, Participating in Awareness Fairs. We are seeking creative and resourceful volunteers to lead committees for these activities.  

Please send Kim an email or call at 303-753-1783 to discuss your interest in volunteer opportunities at more length.
