Fatherhood Engagement
Fatherhood Engagement Resources

Father engagement is a critical component of Child Welfare work in Colorado. Not only is engaging fathers required by rule, but research demonstrates that it can promote positive case and family outcomes, including an increased likelihood of reunification and a decreased length of stay in foster care. There has been a significant amount of work put into creating and sharing tips, tricks, and evidence-based practices for engaging fathers across Colorado and the US, which this website seeks to compile, organize, and make as accessible as possible.

What’s grief got to do with it? EVERYTHING!

Loss is naturally expressed as grief, and our children and youth in care experience many losses. When the normal and healthy experience of grieving is interrupted, it can take the form of behavior that caregivers find confusing and difficult to manage. Take the course NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF GRIEF to deeply understand loss and grief and how to support your child’s natural grieving process.
