AbleLight Continues to Grow in Colorado

AbleLight acquires Path-Co to help more people with developmental disabilities thrive. 

Milwaukee – AbleLight (formerly Bethesda), a national non-profit provider of services for people with developmental disabilities, entered into an agreement with Path-Co to acquire its day program, respite and non-medical transportation services in Grand Junction, Colo., effective March 1, 2023. In addition to the people receiving services and their families/guardians, AbleLight is also welcoming the team members who support the programs and care for the individuals. 

“It is only fitting that we welcome this new group of families and employees to AbleLight during Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month,” stated Chad Wietrick, AbleLight Regional Director. “With over seven million Americans with a developmental disability, this month shines a spotlight on the importance of programs just like this one to help people be more independent and enjoy life, and the critical need of caring individuals to support this often-overlooked population.” 

The day program, respite and non-medical transportation services will complement AbleLight’s growing host home program in the Grand Junction area. Host homes offer the opportunity for a person with disabilities to live in a home with a family while receiving support and services from AbleLight. 

AbleLight has a long history of caring for people with disabilities, dating back to 1904. In Colorado, AbleLight has offered host homes, family caregivers, respites, group homes, day programs, Intermediate Care Facilities, personal care assistants, behavior services and employment supports for many years.
