To provide the best quality care, education, and programs for children and families; and to serve the community in which we live and work!
Opportunities to get involved:
Become a foster parent
Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling has a home office located in Colorado Springs; however, licensure is provided to families throughout the state of Colorado. Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling completes the licensure process for kinship; respite providers; and foster and adoptive families. This process is inclusive of the home study background checks; home inspections; and trainings and supports. At Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling, we take pride in our foster parents and the quality care that they provide to the families and children that we serve. Learn more.
Family Resource Network trains and certifies treatment foster care parents. Learn more about treatment foster care.
Adopt a child or teen in foster care
Currently, Family Resource Network and Kaleidoscope Counseling has a program where we are able to assist families through the adoption process, helping children reach permanence. Most families are licensed as foster/adopt unless they state an unwillingness to adopt. This is done as to not prolong the process if a family and child are reunited and adoption becomes the goal. When completing an adoption through the county there are little to no fees attached in the process. Families are typically licensed as foster/adopt and children are initially placed in the foster care system. They must be in placement typically six months and parental rights must be terminated before adoption is considered an option. Should it be deemed in the best interest of the child to move toward adoption, the foster/adoptive family is considered as the permanent option. Learn more.
Private or international adoption
In addition to the foster/adoptive service, Family Resource Network is available to assist through a contractual agreement for private adoption through ICPC process, as well as private in-state adoptions.
