Court Care provides free childcare for anyone who has court-related business in the Pikes Peak Region. Children are welcomed into a nurturing, safe space away from potentially traumatic courtroom proceedings (e.g. domestic violence, divorce, rape, child custody, etc.). Struggling parents are able to speak with dignity and participate in legal matters without children seeing, hearing or possibly distracting them.
Our extended family of volunteers serve as “aunts, uncles and grandparents” on teams who support local foster families & youth who “age out” of care at 18.

Stability, enrichment and connections build the resiliency kids need to thrive.
