Youth & Family Connections is a community based nonprofit service organization founded in 2005. We provide multi-agency services for Weld County youth engaged in high risk behaviors, as well as for their families. Our mission is to create pathways for youth success, along with partnerships with community, civic, and governmental organizations.
There is no cost for our services. Referrals come from a variety of sources, including schools, law enforcement, concerned parents, and many others. When a youth/family visits one of our two office locations, an individual assessment is completed to determine problem areas and help connect them to local services in their immediate community for support.
Frequently used services include, but are not limited to:
Life Skills Training
Mental Health Services
Relationship-Building and Parenting Classes
Drug and Alcohol Education, Intervention, and Monitoring
Meet Our Executive Team
"Youth & Family Connections is a place that allows me the opportunity to give back to the community that once welcomed me with open arms nearly 15 years ago. As a first-generation student, from a low-income household, I have grown to be familiar with a striving mindset based on a strong foundation built on educational, communal and familial values. These values have naturally inspired me to motivate and inspire individuals in identifying their potential to continue and share this passion to serve others. I fully understand the stories of our youth and familias that walk through our doors. And it is through my own personal experiences and story telling that I connect with our youth and familias.
I look forward to working alongside our youth, familias and our community to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. By working together, we can have a lasting impact across our Greeley community, surrounding communities and Weld County."
