Foster Care and Adoption
Foster Care
Foster care provides protective services for children. Foster Parents provide 24-hour temporary care for children who cannot remain in their own homes due to neglect, abuse, or other significant family problems. The goal of Broomfield Health and Human Services is to strengthen the family of origin to safely return children to their own homes

The objectives of foster care are to:
• Protect the child and provide sufficient care for the child on a temporary basis in a nurturing, safe, stimulating environment.
• Help the child cope with the separation from the family.
• Foster and support a treatment plan for the child to achieve permanency.

Kinship Care

Kinship caregivers are people who are raising a relative’s child or adolescent; or, in many situations are raising a child or adolescent that is not related but with whom there is a significant connection and commitment to provide care as long as necessary.

Adoption information can be found on the CDHS Website.
