Family First
The goal of the 6 counties in the San Luis Valley is to reunite children with their families.  If children cannot be returned to their primary caregiver, every effort will be made to place children with appropriate relatives or other caring adults in their life.  If after all relative options have been exhausted then we place children with a foster or foster-adopt family.
Non-Relative or Foster Care/Foster-Adopt
Today, the 6 counties of the San Luis Valley have few certified foster homes (non-relative) to care for children and youth of our community.  Often times our foster homes are full, which requires that children who come into care must be placed outside of our communities away from their schools, friends, neighbors and extended families.  It is traumatic enough to tell a child we have to place them with people they don’t know, but if the only foster family available is in another community, it only adds to the child’s anxiety and fear.
