Boulder County Foster Care

Two Paths to Foster in Colorado

Boulder County offers two paths to get certified to foster. The first is through the county and the second is to work with a county-approved private placement agency.

If you foster through your county, the children in your care will be right from your own community, which means they can stay in a familiar location and often go to the same school. You will be licensed for that county only.

Alternatively if you choose to work through a private child-placement agency (CPA), you can receive placements from multiple counties and will retain your license if you move to a different county.

The choice is different for many families for many reasons. Review this page. Attend a couple of information meetings and use the form below to connect with Colorado Kids Belong to receive additional information and resources.
