Kempe has partnered with the Colorado Department of Human Services and providers across the state to connect at-risk families to a parent support program called SafeCare® Colorado. This evidence-based program offers proactive, in-home, voluntary services that support at-risk families in gaining skills to provide a safe home, address child health needs, and engage in positive interactions with their children ages 0 to 5-years-old. The services are delivered in the family’s home by trained professionals on a weekly basis. Families typically engage with SafeCare® Colorado for an average of four to six months.
The Kempe Center oversees all the aspects of rollout and sustainability of SafeCare® Colorado from implementation support in collaboration with site leadership, to home visitor training and ongoing coaching, community and human services outreach and marketing, as well as continuous information feedback to improve program delivery. We currently support 13 sites and over 53 parent support providers to serve 41 counties and two tribal nations.
