About Us

Our History

When her grandchild was diagnosed with epilepsy in 1964, Dr. Harriet Hunter incorporated the Colorado Epilepsy Association because there were no support services available for youth with epilepsy.  Working out of her basement, Dr. Hunter and a group of loyal, dedicated volunteers began providing counseling and support to those impacted by epilepsy, while also educating the public about seizure disorders.  As the organization’s reputation grew, permanent staff was hired, office space was secured and employment and youth programs were added to meet the growing needs of people with epilepsy.  In 2000, we expanded our scope of services to areas in Western, Southern and Northern Colorado.
