Ready To Make an Impact?
Our organization is working to build an inclusive and diverse team of passionate experts to develop and implement powerful programs, policies, and initiatives that strengthen families and keep kids safe.
A Colorado where all children and families thrive.
To strengthen families, organizations and communities to prevent child maltreatment.
Our organization's values serve as the guiding principles that define who we are, what we stand for, and how we operate. They provide a framework for decision-making, behavior, and communication that aligns with our mission and vision. Our values are more than just words on a page - they are the cornerstone of our culture and the driving force behind everything we do.
We are innovative and responsive to the needs of families, partners, and the field of child maltreatment prevention.
We pursue growth and continuous quality improvement.
We practice empathy with everyone, everywhere, and in every situation.
We demonstrate integrity in our personal and professional lives.
Our foundations are the building blocks upon which our values are constructed. They are the fundamental principles that anchor our organization and provide a solid basis for our values to thrive. Our foundations transcend individual values but are critical to living them out.
Equitable & Inclusive
We root our approach to strengthening families and communities in the acknowledgement that risk and protective factors for child maltreatment are impacted by structural inequities, including pervasive and systemic racism and white supremacy, both overt and passive.
Family & Community Driven
We embrace all perspectives and definitions of family and community. Our strategies, decisions, and actions are driven by the voice and input of Colorado families and communities.
We see child and caregiver well-being as interdependent and all people as part of family and community structures. Every approach to and with families encourages and creates the benefits of connections.
We recognize that all parts of our work are interconnected. Each level of the Spectrum of Prevention is key to achieving our mission by seeking to identify and understand strengths, risks, and how individuals, communities, organizations, and systems are situated.
