Courage Community supports and integrates the teachings of the following practitioners who use brain-science as a foundation for creating positive interventions:
“The more healthy relationships a child has, the more likely he will be to recover from trauma and thrive. Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love.”
― Bruce D. Perry, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist’s Notebook
Colorado has many foster children needing placement, and too few foster homes to care for them
On any given business day, we receive referrals from five to twenty children needing to be placed in a foster home. Children of every age, ethnicity and circumstance are referred, from newborn to 20 years old. Most of our children are referred along with their siblings. All of the children referred for foster care are removed from their family's care for reasons of abuse and/or neglect. The majority of our referrals for placement originate from the Denver Metro and Colorado Springs area, although we also work with rural communities such as Lake, Summit, Chaffee and Park Counties.
