What Is A Family Worth To A Child In Foster Care?
We believe in a family for every child.
When a child is removed from his or her family as a result of abandonment, abuse or neglect, a foster family stands in the gap until the child and family can be reunified.
In Colorado about 35 percent of kids are successfully reunified with their families; 17 percent are not and often seek adoption.1.
We are working to recruit and retain enough foster parents to ensure every Colorado child can count on a safe, supportive place to belong.
Urgent Fostering Need
Our most urgent need in Colorado right now is for parents open to fostering:
- Kids age 10+
- Sibling groups
- LGBTQ+ youth
- Kids with special needs
Windsor Mayor Paul Rennemeyer signed a proclamation on September 11 to launch the town’s Foster Friendly initiative. In his announcement the mayor encouraged the entire community to come together to support local kids in foster care.
Everyone can do something to dramatically change the experience and outcomes for kids in foster care when we work together.
Learn how you can be a part of Foster Friendly Windsor or work toward your community becoming Foster Friendly.
