Colorado Chafee Program

The Chafee program helps youth who have been in foster care. Eligibility includes those who had an out-of-home placement at age 14 or older (through their 21st birthday), those who transitioned to adulthood from foster care at age 18, 19 or 20 (through their 23rd birthday), and youth who were in a community placement through DYS. Youth who left foster care for other reasons, including adoption, legal guardianship, or aging out may also be eligible. Services include help with education, job training, life skills, connections to housing, and more. This program is voluntary and free but may be limited by funding. The Chafee program is provided through the Colorado Department of Human Services and available throughout Colorado. The best way to get connected (and to verify if you're eligible) is to call one of the numbers below or email cdhs_fosteryouth@state.co.us. Leave a message and they will get back to you.
