Feedback Opportunity: 2018 Annual Progress and Services Report

The Colorado Department of Human Services is preparing to submit the 2018 Child and Family Services Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR), a federally required report that provides an annual update on Colorado’s progress toward accomplishing the goals and objectives in the 2015-19 Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). 

Accomplishing the goals and objectives outlined in the CFSP is a collaborative effort. Colorado is a state supervised, county administered human services system; therefore, CDHS partners with county departments of human services to ensure Colorado’s child and family services are efficient, effective, and elegant. CDHS and county staff frequently work together through collaborative workgroups to develop or revise rules in the Code of Colorado Regulations, oversee implementation of initiatives and improve programs and the system as a whole through continuous quality improvement (CQI) efforts.

In addition to county departments, other State of Colorado agencies, service providers, and community stakeholders collaborate with CDHS to coordinate services and programs that serve Colorado’s children, youth, and families. Representatives from these groups often serve on many of the collaborative workgroups referenced in the report.

The updates provided in this report should reflect the efforts and feedback of stakeholders who routinely collaborate with CDHS to implement the CFSP’s goals and objectives. CDHS is circulating a DRAFT of the 2018 Child and Family Services Annual Progress and Services Report for stakeholders to review prior to Colorado's submission on June 30, 2017.

As the Colorado Department of Human Services has been working with all county human services agencies to improve performance on the federal outcomes and to achieve our CFSP goals and objectives, your feedback is invaluable.  Please feel free to distribute this draft report to staff responsible for the various areas covered in the report. 

Anyone is welcome to provide feedback to Stephanie Johnson at stephaniem.johnson@state.co.us or 303-866-4977. Feedback will help ensure any information we may have missed is included in the report. The deadline for submitting feedback is 5pm on June 27, 2017. 

If you have any questions, please contact CDHS’ Annual Progress and Services Report Specialist, Stephanie Johnson at stephainem.johnson@state.co.us or 303-866-4977.
