Safe and Stable Families


"If it is true that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, isn't it also true that a society is only as healthy as its sickest citizen and only as wealthy as its most deprived?" - Maya Angelou


Promoting Safe and Stable Families

The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program (PSSF) is guided and funded by the Federal Adoption and Safe Families Act, Title IV-B, Sub-Part 2. Local projects provide a variety of family preservation and family support services to families in times of need or crises.

PSSF Projects in Colorado provide services in 41 counties and one Indian reservation. Projects are operated by local community-based agencies. They are designed based on the needs of their particular communities, and so services vary from place to place in the state.


Targeted Area Projects

These area projects supports all types of families. When you contact a targeted area project, you will be connected with a Family Advocate who can help you get involved in services that fit your family's particular needs. There is no fee for service.


Remember, PSSF projects are committed to responding to needs in their community- they invite you to identify your family's unique strengths and needs.
