Colorado Family Education, Resources and Training (CFERT) is dedicated to being a partner and resource for strengthening and supporting today's families. Our mission is to provide leadership, education, information, resources, support and advocacy in responding to the needs of Colorado families.
CFERT translates research into practice and works Statewide to assist agencies and communities in implementing and evaluating family education programs.
We offer technical assistance and training classes focused on professional development of parent educators, prevention specialists and early childhood professionals and childcare providers. Our Resource Center, housed at Colorado State University, provides publications and disseminates information on effective programs, policies, practices and positive parenting techniques as a prevention strategy.
Services provided by CFERT are made possible by a grant funded by the Colorado Division of Behavioral Health (DBH).
