About Us

Sister Carmen Community Center provides assistance to residents of East Boulder County who are in need, without discrimination.

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization with no religious affiliation. As a Family Resource Center, we are East Boulder County’s only comprehensive source of individual and family services. We have been serving our community for over 30 years. We utilize a strengths-based approach in working with participants, recognizing that everyone has a collection of strengths upon which to build. Many programs will refer to helping their participants reach Self Sufficiency. While we use that term, we also recognize that no individual or family is an island. People need people. We want to provide families the resources that can support their efforts towards achieving economic stability and building natural community supports. Strengthening families and community…that is what we are about.
