Foster Youth Transitions Bill Stakeholder Meeting

January 30, 2020

The Colorado Department of Human Services is asking for feedback on a proposed Foster Youth Transitions Bill. Learn more about this proposed bill.

Under this proposal, starting in state fiscal year 2022, child welfare services for young adults (age 18-21) will be developmentally appropriate, client-directed, and voluntary for the young adult. To reflect and support young adults’ emerging adulthood and decision-making, eligible 18-year-olds who have recently left foster care will have the option to return to child welfare if they determine they need and want help. The bill creates a task force to convene in state fiscal year 2021 to plan the implementation of this proposal. 

Date: February 6, 2020
Time: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Location: Colorado State Capitol, HCR 106

For individuals unable to attend in person, a conference call line will be made available.

Dial: 1-877-820-7831
