Mission Statement

Family Life Services helps single moms and their children build new futures through faith-based community.

Description

Moms build futures here

Nestled on the west side of Colorado Springs is an intimate community of single moms and their children. It’s a secluded village-a safe place carved out for courageous women who are building new life patterns and leaving old ones behind.

These are working moms who are also working hard at transformation. It’s gritty and challenging-and full of promise. That’s because God is at work in the village of Family Life and has been since its founding in 1942. Originally the Christian Home for Children, we refined our mission in the 1980’s to focus on single moms and their children.

In the security of their individual apartments, moms and their children thrive under the growing awareness that God is for them. And beside each mom, Family Life staff and mentors walk step by step, life by life, through the hard work of building a better future.

All of this makes Family Life Services practical. Hopeful. And a tangible community where families experience the love of God as his Spirit creates healthy families. It also makes Family Life Services a meaningful place to invest your talents, practical skills and resources for moms, their children and their futures.

Family Life Services continues to uphold and fulfill their mission to serve single moms and their children in the local area. As a part-time volunteer for the past 6 months, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the staff, taking on organizational projects to help FLS better achieve their goals. As a volunteer I can confirm that FLS is making a difference within the community in practical, relavent, and relational ways. The staff is welcoming, energectic, focused, and sincere. I am thankful for the experiences I have shared at FLS and I highly recommend this non-profit to other local volunteers!
