Support Groups

Project 1.27 Support Groups

Having adequate support is essential when fostering or adopting. While there is on-going staff support available to every Project 1.27 family, we encourage you to find local support groups as well.  Join one of the listed support groups, or if there’s nothing in your area, contact us to start one!

We do our best to keep an updated list of Colorado support groups, therefore if you know of any changes to support group times or locations, please keep us updated by emailing

If you are attending a support group session as part of your Project 1.27 training, please fill out and bring this certificate to the support group.
