Casey Family Programs, the nation’s largest operating foundation focused on safely reducing the need for foster care in the U.S., has honored Boulder County and our entire network of partners with the prestigious Community of Hope recognition for our visionary work with families and children. Boulder County Housing and Human Services is seizing this opportunity to set in motion a community conversation around building a more family driven, prevention oriented, and holistic safety net.
On Friday, September 26, 2014, we hosted a Community of Hope Summit with about 200 of our community partners and staff. The summit featured both a celebration of the Casey recognition and the beginning of a deeper conversation on the ways we can all work together toward this vision of our safety net.
The framework that is developing out of the Community of Hope is now helping guide our Boulder County Partnerships across Boulder County.
