    Collaborative Foster Care Program


    The Collaborative Foster Care Program is a joint venture between Arapahoe, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties Departments of Human Services. On average, within our three counties, we have over 1,100 children in foster care. These children have been abused or neglected and are in need of a safe, caring home that values family connections. We are so glad you are interested in learning more about ways to get involved in supporting these children and becoming a certified foster family.

    How do I become a Foster Parent?

    Foster Parent’s meet the day-to-day needs of the youth placed in their home. They are not guardians, nor do they have legal custody of a youth in their care, but they are a vital member of our team. These families must be able to provide for the youth unconditionally. The responsibilities are significant, but the rewards are great! If you’re ready to learn more, please attend an Information Night.
