This year marks our 60th anniversary and it is an occasion to be celebrated. Colorado Christian Services was founded by Walter and Marie Martin in 1963, members of the Englewood church of Christ. Although they had six children of their own, they knew that not all kids had good homes, and they wanted to do what they could to help.


Walter and Marie first opened a small group home next door to the church building as part of their dream to help “troubled teens.” Walter and Marie slowly adjusted their mission from supporting children during a difficult transition, to guiding children into stable and permanent families that could love them always through adoption. This vision continues today.


We are committed to being a leader in the field of adoption because of our dedication to strengthening families with an emphasis on Christian values, as well as respecting the dignity and worth of all individuals.


To date, nearly 1,200 children have been placed for adoption and over 6,500 women in unplanned pregnancies have been counseled throughout our 60-year history. Many lives have been touched in big and small ways by CCS.


We have seen God’s faithfulness time and time again and are hopeful for all He will do in the coming years.
