Ensuring that children are placed in wonderful homes.

When placing a baby for adoption, the one question almost all birth parents have is, “How can I trust that the adoptive parents I choose are truly good people?” ​

 

Family Assessment

We provide family assessments using the Structured Analysis Family Evaluation* (SAFE) instrument required by the State of Colorado. SAFE aids home study practitioners in performing a thorough, structured and uniform evaluation of families who have applied to foster or adopt.

 

We have skilled caseworkers on staff who are well-trained, experienced and able to conduct family assessments in a timely manner.

 

Like all licensed adoption agencies in Colorado, we utilize the SAFE instrument that uses research-based methods to create a more structured and accountable snapshot of hopeful adoptive parents. This method gives Colorado Christian Services a stronger grasp on whether or not the applicants are qualified and suited to adopt.

 

Family Interviews

Throughout the Family Assessment process, we meet with our prospective adoptive families through a minimum of four interviews. During these sessions, a variety of topics are covered, ranging from family history to marital relationship, from discipline techniques to home safety.

 

We walk through the entire adoption process with our prospective adoptive families, ensuring that when the time comes, they are prepared and equipped to become adoptive parents.

 

Out of State Family Assessments

Colorado Christian Services is licensed in the State of Colorado and is able to complete Family Assessments for families who reside in the state. Families who live outside of Colorado will need to obtain a Family Assessment through a licensed agency in their state. We are happy to provide referral information for agencies in other states.

 

Embryo Adoption Services

For couples that choose Embryo Adoption, we are also able to provide the Family Assessment needed to assist you in pursuing this unique form of adoption.

 

Contract Program

Colorado Christian Services works with families who need only a portion of our services in order to complete an adoption. Each of our adoption services is available on a contract basis.

 

*The Structured Analysis Family Evaluation* (SAFE) program was created by the Consortium for Children (CFC), founded in 1999 with the intent to support and collaborate with public child welfare agencies, families, the court system and other participants in the public child welfare system to provide better outcomes for children and youth in foster care.

We feel that the process Colorado Christian Services goes through takes care of all the concerned parties and does it in such a way that the lives of those involved are further enriched with the love of Christ.
