Volunteer for the Denver March Pow Wow, March 23-25, 2018

The Colorado Department of Human Services is sponsoring an informational booth at the Denver March Pow Wow, March 23-25, 2018 at the Denver Coliseum. Staff from county departments of human/social services, child placement agencies and other nonprofit partners are invited to volunteer for the booth and share their information about becoming a foster parent.
