Colorado Kids In Foster Care Are All Of Our Responsibility

4,357* Kids In Colorado Are In Foster Care Right Now

Imagine being 10 years old and being awakened in the middle of the night by a stranger…

who tells you in a gentle, yet unfamiliar voice, that you must leave home, due to a crisis that has nothing to do with you. And then in the midst of this turmoil you and your siblings are separated and placed in different homes.

This story has repeated itself in some form in the lives of 4,357 kids in our state over the past year.

Could Your Silence Really Mean No To Kids In Foster Care?

AKB’s CEO Todd Kinzle and Colorado’s State Manager Tracee Rudd share their personal journeys from caring about kids in foster care to caring for kids in foster care.
