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.
Inside individual apartments, moms and their children are free to eat and sleep and thrive under the growing awareness that God is for them. And for 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 and his Spirit creates healthy families.
