Whether it's low-cost after-school care, parenting classes or advocacy for families, all of our work supports our mission:
"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 provides direct support to families: health insurance enrollment, utility assistance, or a housing payment.
These are our neighbors and our friends and you can help. In addition to helping families in need, we provide education and are a one-stop referral source to programs within the Coalition and connections to other programs and agencies in our community.
The Family Center seeks to build community, reduce family isolation, and strengthen families by linking families together to lend each other the nurturing support once found in extended family networks and small communities.
Your tax-deductible gift will go directly to helping families and our efforts to help make La Plata County a community where families help each other.
