Family Collaboration

The Family Collaboration Program (Span) is a voluntary home visit program for any family referred from the Jefferson County Human Services Department. Collaboration nurses offer parenting support, stress management tools and information regarding nutrition, feeding and care of children, birth control and behavioral issues. Nurses can offer support to moms, dads, grandparents and other caregivers and provide services on average from 4 to 7 months. 

Families receive the greatest benefit when they meet with the nurse at least eight times. Caseworkers and families with an open case or assessment with the child welfare system can request services, and services can extend past case closure. Caseworkers make a referral through the CAT system. For more information, please call 303-275-7517 or email [email protected], and ask for a nurse in the collaborations program.
