Sheridan Ross - making a difference in our community
As a firm with roots dating back more than six decades in Colorado, Sheridan Ross P.C. and its employees strongly believe in working to enrich the communities in which our employees and clients work and live.

Volunteering at Brent's Place -- Children's Hospital Colorado
Several members of the Sheridan Ross team have had the opportunity to serve as volunteer chefs at Brent's Place near the Children's Hospital Colorado campus over the past few months.
Since its inception, Brent’s Place has remained the only Children's Hospital Colorado approved “Safe-Clean” housing facility for immune compromised patients and their families, providing a living environment that is essential to healing and recovery. Brent's Place offers families “Safe-Clean” individualized housing in an environment virtually free from dander, dust, mold and other infectious agents. The programs and housing facility were created by the Brent Eley Foundation to help bridge the gap between the hospital and going home.
