SafeCare Colorado Families Celebration at the Zoo!

ACECC, in partnership with Savio House and Family Tree, hosted a celebration at the Denver Zoo for SafeCare© Colorado families.  Taking place, the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend, this FREE event offered families a unique opportunity to spend valuable quality time together.  In addition to free admission to the Zoo for the day, families enjoyed the opportunity to ride the carousel, meet and greet animals up close and personal, get their faces painted, and eat lunch!   

This event was open to graduates, current families, and families interested in participating in the SafeCare© Colorado program with the hope of facilitating family support within the program.  Families and staff attending the event expressed the value meeting with families at different stages of the SafeCare© program. 

There were 74 families for a grand total of 499 people in attendance.  Many of whom had never had the opportunity to visit the zoo before and were excited to share the experience with their families.  It is our goal to continue building strong relationships with the families currently involved in SafeCare©, and to reach out to the new families we met at the event. 

We’d like to extend our gratitude to the Colorado Office of Early Childhood and the Denver Zoo.

The Denver Zoo was a fantastic partner for the event, providing food, fun, and friendly service to all who attended the event.  Additionally, the event would not have been possible without the support of the Colorado Office of Early Childhood SafeCare© Colorado program.
