Programs & Tools
While Illuminate works on multiple levels to support families–including working with organizations and advancing policies that strengthen families–we have multiple programs and tools that are available directly to families.
Circle of Parents®
The Circle of Parents® program offers peer support groups for anyone in a parenting or caregiving role. To learn more about Circle of Parents® in Colorado, visit the program website.
Colorado Connected is building connections that surround families with supportive networks, so parents do not feel alone when faced with challenges. Doing so creates a safe, stable environment for children to grow up in, producing positive childhood experiences and outcomes. Visit CoConnected.org to find tools and information to help you connect with those around you.
Family Connects Colorado connects parents of newborns to the community resources they need through postpartum nurse home visits – all at no cost to parents! To learn more about Family Connects Colorado and see if it’s available in your area, visit the program website.
Illuminate’s FASD Support program is a holistic initiative that consists of two essential components: an FASD Navigation program and an FASD Training program. To learn more about the program, visit our FASD Support program page.
Pinwheels for Prevention
The Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign provides a unique opportunity for all of us, individuals and organizations alike, to take action by learning more about prevention, supporting child and family friendly policies and services, and volunteering at the local, state, and national levels. Visit COPinwheelsforPrevention.org to learn more.
Smart Choices, Safe Kids
Illuminate Colorado created this educational resource for families, friends, and neighbors to get more information to guide us all through the choices we have to make at every age and stage of life to keep kids safe. Learn more at SmartChoicesSafeKids.org.
In order to prevent child sexual abuse, adults need to take greater responsibility to educate themselves on how to create safer communities where everyone is actively thinking about how to prevent children from experiencing sexual abuse. Illuminate Colorado created this initiative to empower adults to protect children in every community in Colorado from experiencing child sexual abuse.
