THE WEST STEPS
During sessions of the Colorado General Assembly, we brings you the latest analysis of legislation impacting early childhood, family economic prosperity, child and family health, and youth success in Colorado.
KidsFlash connects you to the resources and information you need to make a difference in the lives of Colorado's children.
Delivering lasting impact
Colorado kids and families, and what best serves their wellbeing, are at the center of our state policy and advocacy – especially those who face significant barriers to opportunity.
We use the latest data, research, and experiences of those who are most impacted to work in partnership with statewide advocates, state agencies, and elected officials.
We collaborate with our network and partner coalitions at the local, state, and federal level to serve as a bridge ensuring Colorado is the best state for kids.
We change systems so that they reflect our values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion – to make them best equipped to serve Colorado kids and families.
