Through education, resource networking, and positive relationship building, we form respectful, productive family partnerships that create thriving, empowered individuals who are self-reliant and who envision a hopeful future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
The La Plata Family Centers Coalition (LPFCC) began in 1984 as a Mother's Center, located in Durango, Colorado, where mothers and their children met for support and socialization. In 1993, the Mother's Center transformed into the Parents Center after a statewide initiative and funding resources shifted to include parents. During that reorganization, the Parents Center expanded to sites in Bayfield, Ignacio, and Fort Lewis Mesa. To include all sites, the name changed to La Plata Family Centers Coalition. In 2014, LPFCC expanded the Access to Healthcare Program into Archuleta County and began co-locating staff at the La Plata Department of Human Services.
In 2015, LPFCC expanded again into Archuleta County with the Colorado Community Response (CCR) program. In addition, LPFCC houses a Family Navigator within the Department of Human Services in Archuleta County who provides Family Support Services (FSS). In 2017, LPFCC expanded the Colorado Community Response (CCR) to La Plata and San Juan Counties in partnership with the La Plata County Department of Human Services. In mid-2017, in an effort to better support families, LPFCC relocated to within a block from La Plata Department of Human Services, and the Early Childhood Council (ECC).

Colorado Community Response:
-Loved the program and appreciate the help
-Anne is amazing and always makes sure my family is taken care of.
-I am not accustomed to ask or receive anything. When I moved here from Idaho with no family, I had to learn to ask for help, and I was turned down many times. I can't begin to express how grateful I am for the money that was given to me towards snow tires. Especially now that it has snowed so much. I know that if this organization did not provide for me, I would not be able to get to work. Having Anne work with me has been the greatest asset. Thank you.
-This program and La Plata Family Services in general have been so very wonderful in helping all of our needs always going above and beyond what I'm even aware that we need. Thanks so very much.
-CCR and family center have been a blessing to our family. I urge all my friends to come in.
