Partners for strong families & quality early experiences

Triad Bright Futures, the Local Coordinating Organization (LCO) for Clear Creek, Gilpin, and Jefferson Counties is seeking a Navigator to provide local resources, connections, and administrative support for the Universal Preschool Colorado Program (UPK). The Navigator will work with partners to ensure all families in Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin counties have the support they need to promote their child’s well-being for sustained success in school and life.

Organization Overview

A strong public-private partnership of Jefferson County community leaders launched Jeffco’s Bright Futures Roadmap in 2019, a county-wide vision of improved outcomes for Jefferson County families with children from prenatal to age eight. In 2022, these partners re-committed to the Roadmap and developed Triad Bright Futures to serve as the early childhood local coordinating organization for Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin counties.

Triad Bright Futures works to implement the four cornerstones defined in the Bright Futures Roadmap through engagement with all community partners and stakeholders. Additionally, as the LCO, Triad Bright Futures coordinates the Colorado Universal Preschool Program by supporting providers, growing capacity, and increasing access to a variety of high-quality early care and education options through a mixed-delivery system. Triad Bright Futures serves as a coordination partner and will not duplicate existing services or disrupt existing community programs including those provided by Triad Early Childhood Council.

Bright Futures Roadmap Cornerstones

  1. Support providers, growing capacity, and increasing access to a variety of high-quality early care and education options that meet the needs of families through a mixed-delivery system.
  2. Support families in their roles as children’s first and most important teachers through an array of home visitation services that meet diverse needs.
  3. Strengthen access to mental health consultation in order to fully support families’ social-emotional well-being.
  4. Coordinate a robust screening, assessment, and referral system that addresses physical, social-emotional, behavioral, and social determinants of health.

Triad Bright Futures serves as an independent project supported by the Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition (CSPC) as a fiscal sponsor. The Triad Bright Futures Navigator is an employee of CSPC.
