About Us

Who We Are

image85

KAIROS Family Services intends  to provide Mental Health Services in Colorado Springs as well as TRADITIONAL FOSTER CARE services to children ranging in age from zero (0) to eighteen (18), and up to twenty-one (21) years of age who are placed by court order prior to their eighteenth (18th) birthday. Placement is for the purpose of providing a temporary, safe and nurturing environment throughout the period of time in which the child/youth is in care. Children of any race, color or creed will be eligible for services if he/she has a need best met by the agency foster care program. 


KAIROS Family Services also intends to expand its services to children and youth, ages six (6) to eighteen (18) – and persons up to twenty-one (21) years of age who are placed by court order prior to their eighteenth (18th) birthday – who may need more intensive treatment services – providing a specialized TREATMENT FOSTER CARE program.

 

The purpose of the TFC program is specifically for treatment, to include offense specific treatment when needed. Services provided to children/youth in the treatment foster care program will include in-home clinical and treatment services. The agency will make every effort to provide services to children and youth that promotes consistent practice, maintain placement stability and achieve permanency. 


Children & youth served in either program may be in the custody of the legal parent(s), a legal guardian, a ward of the juvenile court, or a dependent of the Department of Human Services. 


KAIROS will strive to make placement matches that are in the best interest of the client and to maintain the placement through permanency outcomes.

The agency will strive to recruit, train and monitor high quality, certified foster homes, and will seek highly qualified, skilled and experienced foster parent(s) for the treatment foster care program.

 

Traditional foster care homes will be trained and prepared to accept sibling groups, teens, infants, children with special needs, children with developmental delays.


In our TFC program, treatment foster parent(s) will be trained and matched to accept children/youth who have identified intensive treatment needs and who may have committed sexual offenses. The agency intends to serve children and families primarily in El Paso County, Colorado and its surrounding counties; however, anticipates being able to provide services throughout the state of Colorado. 


The agency will provide foster families with case management and support services. Caregiver inexperience and burnout are two factors that increase the chance of disruption for a foster child, however unintended that may be. The agency will diligently work to ensure that caregivers have the resources they need to care for children effectively and successfully.
