The Colorado Children's Campaign is the leading voice for Colorado's children. We advocate for the development and implementation of data-driven public policy that improves child well-being, with a focus on health, education and early childhood. We partner with organizations and communities to advance child well-being.
Founded in 1985, the Colorado Children's Campaign has been the leading nonpartisan voice for Colorado children for more than 30 years. Using the most reliable data and research on child well-being and backed by a statewide network of dedicated child advocates, the Children's Campaign champions public policies and programs that help lift children out of poverty; improve child health, early childhood experiences and K-12 education; and realize every chance for every child to reach his or her full potential.
Tom Clark, CEO, Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, Executive VP, Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce: "When I think of the Colorado Children's Campaign, I think 'best data ever.' Whenever I have a business leader looking for data, I send them straight to the Children's Campaign."
Holly Jacobson, It's About Kids Network Member: "By partnering with the Colorado Children's Campaign, the Mesa County Partnership for Children and Families reaches a broader audience collaboratively - at the local and state levels - with KIDS COUNT data, research, information, and advocacy facilitated by the Campaign to improve the quality, access and equity of services for children and their families. The Campaign provides a critical link between children and communities across the state. Through their partnerships, leadership, and initiative, they show that investing in your community, through child and family programs, is supporting the state's most important asset: our future."
2015 Speak Up participant: "I learned tremendous amounts of information and got relevant practice in a realm that formerly seemed inaccessible."
2015 Parent Academy participant: "The Colorado Children's Campaign's Parent Academy was an excellent way to learn concrete ways to advocate for our children's education as well as gain knowledge on how education policy works. I would definitely recommend it for any parent who wants to advocate for their own kids as well as other kids in the community."
Elaine Grossman, Valley Settlement Project, Carbondale: "Valley Settlement is just one of the thousands of organizations that benefit from your important work and advocacy…I would be hard pressed to count the number of times we refer to KIDS COUNT throughout the year."
Jackie Florendo, Alliance for Kids, Colorado Springs: "It's About Kids! is a great resource for our Early Childhood Council and Community! The information, the data, legislative updates, resources and people are fantastic! One example of the many benefits our community has reaped includes the KIDS COUNT in Colorado Community Presentation."
