$40,000 Goal

As a comprehensive family and community resource center we are creating a future where all families in our community are safe, supported, and thriving.
Our Impact: Sliding fee program w/ 100k in scholarships, Community garden, Utility assistance for 230+ families, Car seat classes and Advocacy closet with free hygiene products for 150+ families.


The absence of affordable childcare has been recognized as a significant barrier not only to individual families' economic prosperity but also the economic health and vitality of our entire community. With the average cost per child per month in Larimer County now exceeding $1,000/month and extremely strict income guidelines to qualify for any government support, TFC/LF is helping families cover the cost of care by offering sliding scale scholarships that totals nearly $100,000 annually. These funds support families like Luis and Maria's who say that without TFC/LF, they simply "wouldn't be able to work."

Giving Activity


Working alongside diverse families we provide high quality childcare and supportive services, with an emphasis on cultural attunement with the Latinx community.

Background Statement

Since 1995, TFC/LF has provided services and support to Fort Collins families while also working to improve the systems within which families learn, work, live and play. TFC/LF emerged from a coalition of community members concerned about maintaining and enhancing the quality of life for working families. The organization was established as part of Colorado's Family Initiative and is now one of 30 family resource centers in Colorado and the only one in northern Colorado. Bilingual staff work with families to co-create a shared vision based on strengths and assets within each family. Due to the diversity of its staff and intentional practices of being welcoming and inclusive, TFC/LF has emerged as a trusted and reputable organization for and among Hispanic/Latinx and Spanish-speaking community members, in addition to other populations of families who identify as racially and ethnically diverse.
