What can you do now?

  • Organize a Rebecoming Me watch party! Have a conversation after the film about what each viewer will do with the information they have learned and the stories they have heard.

 

  • Leverage the power of YOUR VOICE for children in foster care. Take a leadership role in your business, clubs, and networks to inform, inspire, and engage.

 

  • Call Governor Polis, or send him an email, asking him to make children in foster care a priority! This 2-minute effort makes a HUGE difference when others do the same. Remind him that the state becomes the “parent” for kids in the system and the Governor is the “father figure,” and they need to do better!

  • Give the gift of your time, talent, or resources to a young person in care. Teachers can tutor, musicians can offer music lessons, mental health professionals can donate time as a counselor, outdoor enthusiasts can take budding naturalists on a hike. Perhaps offer your vacation home to a foster family for a long weekend in the summer. Call Cobbled Streets, and we can make any of this happen!

 

  • Donate to Cobbled Streets! Children in foster care need guiding lights to help them mitigate the trauma and adversity they continue to endure. Cobbled Streets provides these guiding lights for foster kids in the form of positive childhood experiences and the relationships formed along the way. Sports, art, camp, swimming, bikes, music, equine therapy, a night at the theater to see Aladdin, a day at Great Wolf Lodge, and more! Your support helps kids in care have the childhood they deserve.

 

  • Participate in the Ambassador Project. With our partner Foster Source, we are reaching across the state to provide supportive communities for foster and kin families – to create a system outside the system. We currently have Ambassadors in 7 of 23 CO judicial districts and have served 1109 caregivers and 1793 children. There are many volunteer opportunities at our monthly Ambassador events. Call Cobbled Streets to ask how you can get involved in this project!

 

  • Become a respite care provider. Give foster families a temporary break and provide a unique and special opportunity for their foster child. This is a critical need as there is a severe shortage of respite care providers in Colorado, especially in rural areas. Respite care helps prevent placement disruption. The process is county-specific, so reach out to the Human Services Department of your county to learn how to get started.

 

  • Set up a lunch with a powerful, influential person in Colorado. Invite our Executive Director, Shari Shink … she’d love to join the conversation!

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility.  It’s easy to say it’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem. Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”
