Since our founding in 1983, Raise the Future has designed and implemented evidence-based, wraparound services that reduce the amount of time youth in foster care live without a permanent family. Our programs increase the likelihood of forming and sustaining positive connections that help to transform their futures.

To connect youth waiting in foster care with the adults who become stable forces in their lives, and to support those relationships so that they last for a lifetime.

Raise the Future programming works together to support youth and families at every step of their relationship journey. From connecting youth with stable relationships to strengthening families impacted by trauma, Raise the Future is bringing a brighter future in reach for youth and families for generations to come.

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.

Really disappointed with lack of communication.
We inquired multiple times about the same kids over the course of 9 months. Never heard anything until 9 months after our first inquiry. Being told they dropped the ball because they are suppose to call in 39 days to inform you. Which never happened.
In Late September we got a call saying they’d love us to learn more and start the process and have a kiddo moved by December. In October we did another call, then following in November one with our county caseworker. Everything seemed great, we were told to set up a time to contact the caseworker for the kiddo. We emailed, called no answer. Christmas came and went we emailed left voicemails nothing. Sent two emails in January left a few voicemails and still haven’t heard anything.
Our county has reached out countless times as well with no response.

There are loads of kids on heart gallery who have been there for a year + it’s no wonder why they are still looking for homes.. it’s sad.

The adoption exchange teaches families about different types of adoptions. Go to an information class it’s worth it.
