This committee meets the first Thursday of the month from 1 – 2:30 pm in CPCD Room 210 (2340 Robinson Street). For more about this committee, please contact Erika Cincotta at 719.466.9562.

The Family Support & Education Committee assists in the work of Alliance for Kids which aligns its work with the work with the Strategic Plan and Early Childhood Colorado Framework

The relationship between children and their families is the foundation upon which children’s lives depend. The care and support of the family is crucial to a child’s overall successful development. By providing support and information to families, the Alliance for Kids ensures that each child has that necessary foundation. We collaborate with the providers of early childhood services, and the families they serve, to ensure that the children of El Paso County have what is required to succeed in school and life.

  • Strong families and healthy children create thriving communities.
  • Every parent needs support at home, at work and throughout the community, from families, friends, neighbors, and community resources.

We recognize that true partnership occurs when parents and families have the support they need along with the knowledge and skills to function in leadership roles.
