Partner Highlight – The Family Center/La Familia

The Family Center/La Familia has been an important partner from the inception of Safe Kids Larimer County. They provide a safe and familiar space for our Spanish Car Seat Classes once a month plus an area for the caregivers’ children to play during the class. This allows the caregiver to focus on the lifesaving information they are being provided during the class.

Their staff are wonderful advocates for our car seat classes and the importance of car seat safety. When necessary, they provide translation to break down the barrier and increase understanding between the car seat technician and the caregiver. Our partnership with The Family Center is invaluable. 25% of our car seat class participants are Spanish-speaking and we would be unable to reach these families in as an effective way without The Family Center’s support.

Since 1995, The Family Center/La Familia, a bilingual organization, has offered high quality early childhood education and family strengthening services. Their primary goal is to strengthen and stabilize working families with children through supportive services such as childcare, parent enrichment programs and after-school tutoring.
