Illuminating Coalitions & Networks
We foster coalitions and networks to ensure continued progress on policy priorities, identify opportunities to protect existing policies that are serving families and enhance policy implementation and provide support for collaborative changes.
Colorado Strengthening Families Network
Strengthening Families™ is a research-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. It is based on engaging families, programs and communities in building five key protective factors.
The effort to embed Strengthening Families™ in the work of child- and family serving agencies of all types has continued unabated in Colorado since 2007 through this learning community for professionals across sectors to stay on top of new research and best practices related to the protective factors.
Illuminate Colorado coordinates the Colorado Strengthening Families Network, hosting a quarterly online learning community for professionals across sectors to stay on top of new research and best practices related to the protective factors.
Join the network to get invites to meetings and connect with others to share your work and learn from communities all across Colorado.
