Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

 

Pikes Peak Family Connections (Family Connections) is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to promote safe, healthy, and stable relationships between parents and children while preventing child abuse and neglect. It was established in 1976 when it was incorporated as Parents Anonymous, a volunteer child abuse prevention organization that provided support groups for high-risk families until 1982. It was reactivated in 1989 as a nonprofit partner of the El Paso County Health Department's Child Abuse Prevention Program. In 1992 a name change to Pikes Peak Family Connections, Inc. was to better reflect its mission of preventing child abuse and neglect with the teaching of the Nurturing Parenting Program classes. We continued to grow with the 2004 opening of KPC, which was and still is the only crisis respite center for children in Colorado operating 24 hours, 365 days a year with free care. Several years ago we adopted the shortened name of Family Connections to use in marketing promotions and fundraising events. Our bumper stickers continue to be familiar in the community - NEVER HURT A CHILD-NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, EVER. As the number of families served at KPC grew we added a Family Advocate to personally follow each family until it is safe and stable enough to no longer need our services. Today Family Connections is an integral partner in the newly-formed El Paso County Coalition for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect. 

Family Connections leads the community effort in child abuse prevention and treatment by offering a wide continuum of direct services and programs designed to educate and support families in the Pikes Peak region. These services include the Nurturing Family Program, KPC Respite Center, Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention and Education and Outreach.
