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

Family, Friends, & Neighbors Caregiver Supports

Our S.U.C.C.E.S.S. (Supporting Caregivers of Children to Enhance Safety & Success) program provides a variety of FREE resources to informal (unlicensed) caregivers of children in Prowers, Kiowa, and Baca Counties. The program also supports those providers who are interested in becoming licensed.
Some of the services in the program include: monthly support groups, monthly professional development, free activity kits, and access to funding and coaching to help with the childcare licensing process.

Nurturing Parenting Program is an evidence-based program with 25 years of validation and recognized by the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency (OJJDP), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) and Child Welfare League of America (CWLA). The Nurturing Parenting Programs are family-center and trauma-informed developed to teach parenting skills that are nurturing and an alternative to abuse and neglectful practices. The program is designed to meet the assessed needs of families experiencing varying levels of dysfunction to prevent recidivism in services with social services, lower teen pregnancies, reduce juvenile delinquency, decrease substance use and stop intergenerational cycles of abuse by teaching positive parenting skills.

We offer classes in both English and Spanish, for parents of children and youth of all ages.

Kinship caregivers play a critical role in the safety and healthy development of children and youth and help to prevent unnecessary entries into foster care. Despite this, kinship caregivers often experience significant challenges and barriers to maintaining their caretaking role, including difficultly finding affordable childcare and housing, applying for public assistance, or facing challenging family dynamics. To meet these unique needs, we assist kinship caregivers in learning about and accessing programs and resources to meet the needs of the children they are raising and provide help for the family to safeguard stability.

Grandparents
Caregivers
Children and youth

We provide FREE developmental screenings for infants, toddlers, and children up to five-and-a-half years old. We utilize the Ages & Stages Questionnaires to help parents and caregivers monitor their children’s development, and help families with referrals for further evaluation when results indicate a need for more comprehensive screening. We offer both developmental and social-emotional screenings.

Families formed by adoption or guardianship often need extra support and those needs tend to change over time as children and families grow and change. This program addresses the normal issues adoptive and guardianship families face as well as more significant issues that can arise when raising a child who has experienced a traumatic start in life. To meet these unique needs, we assist post-permanency caregivers in learning about and accessing existing programs and resources in the community, as well as providing additional supports to meet the needs of the children they are raising . We provide help for the family as a whole to safeguard stability.

Population(s) Served
Foster and adoptive parents
Grandparents

Emergency financial assistance is available to support short-term emergency needs such as rent/mortgage assistance, utility assistance, and short-term housing (via hotel/campground). An assistance application is required.
