Our mission is to ensure that our Member Centers are strong and optimally equipped to serve Colorado families. The Family Resource Center Association provides public advocacy, capacity building and resource development to strengthen its statewide network of family resource centers as they bring help and hope to Colorado families.
Established in 1998, the Family Resource Center Association was created to support the vital work of Family Resource Centers serving families in need across Colorado. Colorado's Family Resource Centers connect families to the community resources they need to be safe, stable and resilient. Today, FRCA helps a network of 31 statewide Family Resource Centers serve families with a culturally-sensitive approach customized to each family's goals and the community in which they live, toward a strong and resilient Colorado.
Nineteen and pregnant and without much family support, Kristin decided to keep her baby and start the long journey as a single parent. But the road looked daunting and she didn't know where to turn for the tools she needed to successfully navigate her way. A friend then suggested she try her local Family Resource Center.
As you walk into the Family Resource Center, you are greeted by smiling staff who are eager to help. This is a safe place where people care. Today, Kristin is a confident parent, a teacher assistant and going to school to be an early childhood educator. Her daughter is happy, healthy and learning to read.
Tough times may come again, but Kristin knows she can handle whatever life throws at her. "I don't know if I'd be where I am today without the center."
