Colorado prospers when our kids thrive because they are our future workforce, leaders and community members. No matter where they live in our state – the plains, mountains, rural areas or urban centers – children need high-quality support for development. We need a broad base of participation to obtain civic, social and economic well-being in Colorado, even from those who are not involved in day-to-day raising of children. The community’s role is vital to helping Colorado’s children succeed.
