In 2012, we officially became a Family Resource Center (FRC), an organization that is a part of the Family Resource Center Association—a network of organizations across the state committed to strengthening families through partnership and collaboration. FRC’s provide a safe, accessible place for individuals and families to connect to comprehensive and coordinated services that help families achieve their goals. Family Resource Center members agree to adhere to the Principles and Practices of Family Support, established by Family Support America and the Colorado Revised Statute and provide Family Development services and Resource Information and Referral as well as other core services to their communities. Programs at each organization are tailored to the culture, resources, and needs of the community they serve and focus on building upon the strengths of each family and individual.
Family Development Services: Through this program, trained Bilingual Advocates work one-on-one with families to help them set and achieve transformative goals in their lives and help them become more self-reliant. The Family Development framework, a research-based approach, focuses on helping families build from their strengths, take charge of their lives, and access resources that are available in their communities.
Resource Information and Referral: Our Advocates are well-versed in community resources, including other nonprofit organizations and government programs, to support our participants. Anything we can’t do ourselves, we try to refer out, offering specific information and direction for participants so they know what programs they are eligible for and how to connect with them. This provides the best wrap-around support for participants so they can quickly get the help they need through our guidance and knowledge.
