Robert & Susan
We were fairly naïve about fostering when we went to our first Foster Parenting Information Session a few years ago. But once we learned more about it, we felt like we had a lot to offer (including love, care, and security), and have since become passionate about helping kids and families in foster care. We understand that people go through hard times (we’ve had some of our own), and we’re glad we can help provide… Read more “Robert & Susan”
I cannot recommend Courage highly enough. I’m blessed to be in this with Kerri.
Our experience with Courage has been and is a wonderful journey. Working with Kerri is easy and smooth. She puts her heart into every case and that was apparent upon meeting her. My husband and I trust her, as she has wisdom, compassion and experience in the broken world of the Foster care system. I cannot recommend Courage highly enough. I’m blessed to be in this with Kerri.
Courage Foster Community has been one of the biggest blessings to our family.
Since we were very young both my husband and myself wanted to be foster parents. Once we got married he joined the military and that brought us to Colorado. Once we got here we started doing our research on foster care in the state and decided we’d start meeting child placement agencies. After meeting with more than a half a dozen different agencies we both kind of just said, “well none of these seem fitting,… Read more “Courage Foster Community has been one of the biggest blessings to our family.”
We can’t express how glad we are to be working with Kerri!
My husband and I are just now becoming certified with Courage Community Foster Care, but already we’ve been amazed at what a difference it’s made to work with Kerri Hankin. We had worked with a different agency last year in the hopes of an adoption, but encountered countless obstacles with the agency’s lack of integrity, honesty, and sense of justice that ultimately ended in our heartbreak. We had such a horrible experience with the bad… Read more “We can’t express how glad we are to be working with Kerri!”
It has been a great pleasure…
It has been a great pleasure to have you as part of the team in the case we have been involved with together. As the Guardian ad Litem for a child who is placed more than 100 miles away from me, I appreciate your very timely and detailed updates regarding the child. I have never had such comprehensive information from any foster care agency that I have worked with. I also greatly appreciate your involvement… Read more “It has been a great pleasure…”
We love working with Kerri and are thankful to be part of Courage Community!
Courage Community is the second foster agency that we have worked within our years as foster parents, and it has been a fantastic experience. Kerri keeps in much better contact with us and provides exceptional support and encouragement. She is very wise and knowledgeable about working with traumatized kids, and she shares her experience and suggestions in ways that are positive and helpful. She is always available when we have questions or needs. Her paperwork… Read more “We love working with Kerri and are thankful to be part of Courage Community!”
Courage Community has been making life-changing connections between families and children since 2012.
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.
