Requirements to become a foster parent

You must meet minimum requirements to provide foster care for children in Colorado. Foster parents for children and families must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Maintain sufficient income to support a family
  • Have physical and mental capability to care for children and youth
  • Pass a child abuse background and criminal background check
  • Work with a treatment team and undergo future training
  • Complete a Home Study

Prospective foster families can contact a Colorado child placement agency or your local Department of Human Services. Social workers in these child welfare agencies will provide information about Colorado's child welfare system, foster care, and the adoption process.

Social workers recommended that other adults and children in your home agree to provide long-term home care, too. If everyone is ready to welcome a new child, your local agency will help your home become an approved foster home.

As a staff member, I've seen first hand the amazing impact this organization has on kids, adults, and seniors. They serve all with disabilities (cognitive, emotional, or physical) by promoting, strengthening, and supporting individuals, families, and caregivers via Children's Services, Adult Services, as well as Behavioral and Home Health offerings.

Do not work for this company. I was terminated just for complementing a employee for a stone they was wearing. They use your Spiritual beliefs against you. They also explained my Spiritual beliefs was making them feel uncomfortable. My Spiritual beliefs is in the 1st Amendment since 1985. I didn't explain anything Spiritual to anyone. I just complemented someone about a Amethyst stone and that was all.
Also it was explained to me that if I contact anyone from the company then they would get lawyers and prosecute me. Say you've been working at the company for 5 years and sksf for some petty reason decided they no longer want you working there. That means the friendships that you've acquired while being there is not able to have contact with you. This company is a bully.
