Resources, Support and Connection
for the Parenting Journey
Aspen Family Connections is a family resource center, created to connect all Pitkin County children, youth and families with a wide range of community resources. Whether you need economic assistance and benefits, academic and extra-curricular support, social/emotional and mental health counseling, legal advice and mediation, summer activities – or anything else – we’re here to help you find and access it. We also provide lots of classes and events to help families stay informed about parenting topics and in touch with each other. We work closely with many other community partners to support families in whatever way they need, to help them achieve their goals, and overcome challenges and barriers. AFC is here to support and advocate for all families, at no charge, in a spirit of warmth, inclusion, confidentiality and without judgement.
“It seems that every time the community has a need, AFC is right there…making a difference.” ~ASD parent of 3 children
