A Fostering Success Program participant opening her care package

 

CARE PACKAGES


 A tradition of the Fostering Success Program are the care packages that we send out to students several times during the semester. The care packages are full of helpful items like notebooks, binders, pencils, snacks, and gift cards.

Students receive care packages by first requesting to receive them on the beginning of the semester survey that FSP staff send out. All a student has to do is check the box on that survey and enter in their mailing address.  If the student lives in the residence halls, then the package will be delivered and kept at the front desk of that respective building.  If a student lives in the city of Fort Collins, the package will be either delivered at their home or a student has the option to request to pick up their care package.  If requested, the care package is held at the front desk of CASA. This is typically offered to students who are living outside of Fort Collins and/or living in a place where they cannot receive packages.

Their services are strictly confidential. All services are free except for counseling, which is low-cost and based on your ability to pay.

Mental Health and Drug Abuse

  • Mental illness is common among drug addicts. The relationship between mental health and drug abuse is so strong that many people believe the drugs cause the illness. In most cases, this is not true. People who have mental illness usually seek out the drugs to self-medicate. These people do not realize that their attempts only lead to a larger problem-addiction. Fortunately, proper treatment and diagnosis can help the addict recover from what the medical establishment calls a dual diagnosis.

Christ Clinic 

  • Christ Clinic accomplishes its mission by providing free primary care in an outpatient setting. Their aim is to act as the essential medical providers for members of the Northern Colorado community who are uninsured or do not have access to other providers regardless of their background, creed or beliefs.
