The La Plata Family Center Coalition provides direct support to families: a single mother who has a sick child and needs health insurance, parents who have lost their jobs and need help with utility bills, groceries, or housing payment.
These are our neighbors and our friends and you can help. In addition to helping families in need, we provide education and a one-stop referral source to programs within the Coalition and connections to other programs and agencies in our community.
Whether it's low-cost after-school care, parenting classes or advocacy for families, all of our work supports our mission:
"to enrich lives by creating partnerships with families and individuals that nurture our thriving community. We are responsible stewards who manage programs throughout La Plata county that provide access to healthcare, emergency assistance, education, family support, childcares services, and safe exchange and supervised visits"
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-deductable gift will go directly to helping families and our efforts to help make La Plata County a community where families help each other.
