Recruit foster and adoptive families at Pueblo Chile Fest

The Colorado Department of Human Service is sponsoring a recruitment and retention booth at the Pueblo Chile & Frijoles Festival, September 22-24. Chile Fest attracts more than 100,000 attendees from across the state.

Volunteers from county departments and child placement agencies are encouraged to volunteer for one or more shifts at the booth. Volunteers will be able to hand out information about their foster care and adoption program. They will also be able to have one-on-one conversations with adults who are interested in becoming certified. Volunteers will also collect email addresses, which will be shared with the volunteers' organization or county after the event.
