Jefferson County, Colorado


About Us

Since 2017, Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) and Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition (CSPC) have partnered to support Spanish speaking families and service providing agencies in building a network that will develop and rely on the leadership of the Spanish Speaking families. This network of community members and organizational partners provide continuing education opportunities to Family, Friend, and neighbor (FFN) childcare providers, personal and professional development to community members, and collaborate strategically to extend training opportunities across the Denver Metro Area. Adelante participates in the State FFN Strategic Network Group, RAISE Colorado, and Roadmap for Bright Futures Steering Committee advocating for families and communities. Focus is on Spanish-speaking/Latino children and families concentrated in under-resourced communities.


Adelante works to enhance the social capital for Latino children and families by developing neighborhood level strategies connected to formal systems as a structure for community impact, advocacy, and policy development.


Jefferson County is a community where Latino children thrive. A society where each family has the tools and the power to raise their children, direct the creation of community resources, and be valued as experts in the health, education and well-being of their families.

Learning Community Goals and Strategic Priorities

During the learning community, Adelante is focusing on the following goals and strategic priorities:


  1. Connect and support families: educate parents and families about the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of children. Provide support for the challenges of parenting in a way that is culturally relevant, strengthening family resiliency and emotional health

  2. Strengthen the capacity of community action: ensure that the community has the necessary tools to navigate the health and education systems and that their voices are heard and included in decision-making processes

  3. Strengthen the coordination of services: Ensure that providers and families are connected to support systems and that organizations offer competent, relevant, and responsive services

  4. Manage the finances and create a sustainability plan for Adelante
