The RFA for Cohort 2 of SafeCare® Colorado has been modified to be more inclusive and to best serve Colorado communities. We’ve changed the yearly target served to range between 50-300 families so that smaller counties partnering together can meet the expected reach. Across the chosen Cohort 2 sites, we are expecting to serve 600 families a year with SafeCare® services. Applications should be submitted by provider agencies; however, applicants will need to demonstrate strong collaboration with county child welfare departments. The application is straightforward, with questions sites should be able to answer from current knowledge.
The most important thing for Cohort 2 sites is that they are ready with established collaborations, existing referral sources, and promise for sustainability. Throughout the roll-out for funded sites, Kempe Center staff will provide needed support, and help resolve set-backs experienced along the way.
