Family Education and Community Programs
Providing emergency assistance to the communities in the West End
The West End Family Link Center is a proud member of the Family Resource Center Association and we aim to provide a safe, accessible place for families to connect with comprehensive, coordinated services that help them strengthen their families and become more self-reliant. We will be you advocate and friend.
Through a grant from Energy Outreach Colorado we provide energy assistance to households that are experiencing difficulties in meeting energy bills by providing help to pay for electric, gas, propane, and wood pellets. We also help with LEAP applications and energy emergency advocacy.
Our food bank provides a variety of of food for all those in need of food assistance. In addition,the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that provides a supplemental food box to low-income individuals. And senior food boxes are also distributed to those who qualify.
We offer a very popular program called the Toy Lending Library where totes with toys and children's books are rotated out weekly during home visits. Some are also participating in our family education programs during that time as well. We also do senior visits.
We provide Nurturing Parenting Classes in both a group setting and single family home visits. We also provide the Bright By Three program visits with parents and other caregivers that provides a three-step program to make sure their little ones get the best start at life.
We have various children's programs going on throughout the year such as CATCH, Exploring Foods, Free Lunches during certain times, After-school and Summer Programs. There are also programs that involve entire families such as Eating Smart and Being Active, etc.
