JFS places therapists in schools throughout the Denver metro area to provide free mental health services to students and their families through two unique programs—KidSuccess and International KidSuccess.

KidSuccess is an innovative program in which trained Jewish Family Service therapists work in Aurora and Denver Public Schools, providing children and adolescents access to quality counseling services. Our unique hands-on approach promotes a supportive school environment for students that fosters achievement, high self-esteem, resiliency, and personal responsibility. We recently expanded to provide more targeted services to parents and guardians of children in Early Childhood Education (ECE) classes as well.

International KidSuccess offers culturally sensitive school-based counseling services that help refugee children and adolescents adjust to their new school, culture, and home in the United States. An overarching goal of the program is to support refugee youth through the major life transition of resettlement so they are better able to focus on and succeed in school. The program serves refugee students at highly impacted Denver metro and Aurora public schools, utilizing psycho-educational and therapeutic activities and interventions.
