Boulder County Housing & Human Services Early Intervention offers prevention and stabilization services to families in various voluntary programs that promote the strengths of the family and community. Early Intervention utilizes integrated case management skills, self-sufficiency assessments and innovative programs to prevent child welfare involvement and create a thriving community for the children and families of Boulder County.
Colorado Community Response (CCR) is a parent-led, voluntary program managed by a team of dedicated staff at Boulder County. As this suggests, parents can choose whether they participate in the program as well as the types of goals we focus on. As such, one of the most important parts of our work together is communication to ensure that we are always working to meet our collective goals!
Every family is unique, and each family’s needs vary. We meet each family just where they are to provide comprehensive support in a variety of domains. We work within a two-generational model. This means we partner with families in a way that supports the whole family: both parent and child.
Who can participate in CCR:

The Family Unification Program (FUP) is a housing voucher program specifically for families involved with Child Welfare in Boulder County. Unlike vouchers available to anyone who qualifies, FUP vouchers are awarded through a very specific program to families where a lack of housing is a barrier to a family reunifying.
In the FUP program, participants can expect to work with a support specialist for one year. During this year, you will receive coaching on how to maintain your voucher and utilize the resources available to you. Your support specialist will assist in finding housing and other information to help the family become stable. In addition to this stability, the objective for FUP is for participants to gain skills to successfully maintain their vouchers.
Support can look like:
Early Intervention Program works with families in which a tangible need exists, and where the meeting of that need will likely prevent future child welfare referrals and/or intervention; this need can realistically be resolved in 1-3 months. Families that will voluntarily work with the Early Intervention Program toward self-sufficiency by following through with referrals and participating in goal setting. Clients are first referred to appropriate community agencies dependent upon their location and situation.
