Mountain Family Center is a place that truly cares about the community they serve. The staff is never too busy to listen and try to understand what their clients are going through. Whether you stop in for food from the food pantry, rent or utility assistance, vouchers for the thrift store or any of their other services, you are always greeted warmly, with a smile. They are so non-judgmental. which makes it a little easier to stop in and ask for help. Mountain Family Center is an invaluable asset to Grand County, and we are so lucky to have them!

I have personally seen Mountain Family Center impact children and adults living in Grand County. With food pantries in Kremmling and Granby, the Center is accessible to residents who need assistance with food, shelter, clothing and other basic human needs. I have witnessed these great efforts firsthand. One client with a disability was struggling to make ends meet and needing to find a place to live. The staff at the Center spent a lot of time with him to help him find the resources that he needed to move into his own affordable place. He also got redirected to sign up on food stamps and in the interim the Center provided him with food. His whole attitude has changed and he has become more self-reliant after getting his basic needs covered.

The Center also provides food totes for children in the East and West Grand School District. Every Thursday during the school year the Center sends home food totes for over 285 children who are most often enrolled in the free or reduced meal program at school. The Totes program provides nourishing snacks for children who live in homes with little food to eat allowing them to return to school focused and ready to learn- not hungry. GREAT JOB to the friendly, caring, professional staff at the Center!!
