Courage Community Foster Care provides foster families for children who cannot live with their birth families for reasons such as abuse, neglect and abandonment. We believe that to best serve our foster families and children, we must focus on providing service within the community where we live: El Paso County, Colorado. Far too often, foster children are not only removed from their families - they are also displaced from the schools and communities that are familiar to them. As a response to this dilemma, Courage Community Foster Care is committed to offering homes in El Paso County for only El Paso County's children.

Courage Community Foster Care offers ongoing brain-based, trauma informed education so that our foster families may carry out what they came to foster care to do: help children heal. We connect foster families with area resources, special activities, other foster families and volunteers in order to create a supportive network, because being a foster parent is quite possibly the most challenging role one can assume.

Courage Community Foster Care staff will help you through every part of the foster parenting experience: orientation, certification to become a foster parent, placement of foster children and meaningful support. Should our foster families elect to adopt, Courage Commuinty Foster Care will help to facilitate this process, and to ensure that post adoption support networks are put into place.
