CO4Kids is Colorado’s campaign to raise awareness of ways to prevent child abuse and neglect as well as the need for foster families across the state. Every parent needs help from time to time – from family, friends, and sometimes, from professionals. If you are concerned about a child’s safety and well-being

Foster parents provide a safe, temporary home for children and youth whose parents or caregivers are unable to care for them. When a child or teenager is removed from their home and a caseworker is unable to identify a family friend or relatives to care for them temporarily, they are placed in foster care. 

It is important to remember that when a child or teenager is removed from their home the primary goal is usually to return the child or teenager to their parent or caregiver once they can provide a safe and stable home. However, if that option is not available, adoption or another type of permanent home is the secondary goal. 

Foster parents provide a temporary safe, stable home for children who have experienced abuse and neglect and whose parents need time to learn new skills to become the parents their children need them to be.

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.
