Colorado Partners

Bright by Three partners with regional lead agencies that take responsibility for representing our programs in county-defined territories. This network makes certain our programs are available to parents and caregivers in every part of Colorado. Additionally, agency partners deliver Bright by Three visits as a complement to their other services and programs. Typically, our lead agencies develop and manage the agency relationships in their territories.
