Colorado Kids Belong is helping drive sustainable change in foster care by forging a coalition for change with child welfare, valued strategic partners, businesses, faith communities and government leaders.
It is helpful when one business offers discounts to foster families or when a family’s faith community works with them to advocate for and support their own kinship and foster families. But it is only when we coalesce our unique capabilities that significant, sustainable change can take place.
We’re committed to bringing hope to communities across our state by liaising across these sectors to collaborate in order to dramatically improve the experiences and outcomes of kids in foster care. It’s a big vision that we are committed to bringing to reality in Colorado – and across the country as part of the America’s Kids Belong family.
The Foster Friendly App has opened many opportunities for the community to serve our foster parents in a real and tangible way. Our families have expressed excitement and sincere gratitude in feeling supported by local businesses.
