The STORY STUDIO : Capturing OUR stories about experiences in the Colorado Child Welfare System ....
because our stories contain, in a nutshell, the wisdom of experience and hope. In the context of the child welfare court and agency systems, stories from our stakeholders help us to focus our efforts; they often give us hope that our work is meaningful and they inspire us to act and to seek better solutions for the children and families we serve. They remind us that, in the dark world where children are neglected or abused and where parents are unprepared for their task, the bright light of success is possible and shines more often than we think. We know that YOU have stories to tell. Please consider donating yours; think of it as a contribution that will inspire all of us and energize us to keep on doing everything we can to help children, youth and families in Colorado. Click the link, schedule a time to record, and help us build the Colorado Child Welfare Audio Storybook!
