  • About

    Special Kids Special Families (SKSF) is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1998 to provide community support and services to families who are raising youth with disabilities and special needs.

    Our agency noted the lack of community services to prevent out of home placement for youth and young adults. Respite care, specialized foster care, adult day programs, and family preservation services have evolved from this need.
