Since 2010, we have led the effort to permanently place children from foster care into loving families. When we began there were 612 children in Colorado that were legally free and being recruited for adoption. Today there are 265! Through our efforts, along with CDHS and Colorado partners, we have helped to see those numbers drastically reduce. We have engaged churches, businesses and individuals across Colorado to foster, adopt, and care for Colorado's kids.
The work done by ACK in Colorado is now starting to impact kids across the country! In early 2015, ACK’s Board of Directors incorporated the sister organization America’s Kids Belong to provide Brian Mavis, the co-founder of ACK, an amazing national team for working with other states. Through sharing proven strategies, the goal is for all 50 states to organize to end the foster care and adoption crisis by 2025.
