We'll be calling you tomorrow night, we hope you pick up the phone.
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) is drafting a new state Child and Family Services Plan, which is essentially a five-year strategic plan for child welfare and input from foster parents, relative and non-relative caregivers is essential!
The Colorado Department of Human Services will be calling Colorado foster and kinship parents whose phone numbers are listed in Trails Thursday, December 13th for a telephone town hall hosted by Ann Rosales, director of the CDHS Division of Child Welfare. The town hall will include a few short questions and also provide an opportunity to share your experience, get any questions that you might have answered and help state and local partners learn more about how to better support you.
If you are concerned that CDHS might not have your correct phone number, feel free to register below and we'll give you a call!

If you can't participate on this call, the Colorado Department of Human Services is asking ANYONE with an interest in child welfare to TAKE THIS SURVEY by Wednesday, January 16th.
This outreach opportunity is also part of an ongoing effort to better support foster parents. The Colorado Department of Human Services and local partners held a series of local town hall discussions in 2017 with foster parents to talk about some of the ideas in the 2016 Annie E. Casey Foundation report entitled “A Movement to Transform Foster Parenting” exploring ways for public agencies to ensure that children receive the care they need by enlisting more volunteers to step forward as foster parents and by encouraging the extraordinary individuals who have already answered the call to continue their commitment to care. In addition, a foster parent steering committee recently concluded their efforts and made recommendations to address identified challenges.
