What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Supervised Exchange and Parenting Time (SEPT)

Supervised Exchange/Parenting Time (SEPT) is a court-ordered service that protects children from witnessing parental disputes during exchanges and provides supervised visits to non-custodial parents in cases that may involve substance abuse, mental illness and/or domestic violence. This program provides children with a neutral, safe setting where they can develop and maintain healthy relationships with both parents. No other agency provides this service in El Paso County, and all supervised visits and exchanges are facilitated by SEPT staff and highly trained facilitators. SEPT served 155 children and 100 families in fiscal year 2020–2021.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
Children and youth

Milton Foster Children’s Fund (MFCF) provides foster children with resources not funded through other agencies. These include scholarships for summer camp, driver’s education, sports, enrichment activities, and financial assistance for other unmet needs. The Hanger, a project of MFCF, is a store where teens in foster care may “shop” for free clothing and accessories, gain work experience, and participate in life skills workshops to prepare them for adulthood. MFCF served 481 children and foster youth in fiscal year 2020–2021.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
At-risk youth

Children and Families in Transition (C-FIT) educates parents about the effects of divorce on children and instructs them about the legal aspects of custody arrangements and the negative effects of parental conflict on children. This class is mandatory for all divorcing parents in the 4th Judicial District. C-FIT served 2,928 parents in fiscal year 2020–2021.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Dependency and Neglect (D&N) program provides volunteer advocacy for child victims of abuse and neglect. These cases involve physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse, severe neglect, and domestic violence and are appointed to CASA by the 4th Judicial District Court. Highly screened and trained volunteers assigned to cases visit the children frequently and meet with those involved in the case. CASA advocates monitor compliance with court orders, attend hearings, look for family connections, "speak up" for children in court, and write objective reports that provide valuable information to help judges rule in the best interest of each child. D&N served 607 children in fiscal year 2020–2021.

Population(s) Served
