About Our Auction
All donations for auction items go directly to The Family Center/La Familia and support the work we do in our community.
Working alongside diverse families we provide high quality childcare and supportive services, with an emphasis on cultural attunement with the Latinx community. This work is done with an explicit vision of creating a community in which all families are safe, supported, and thriving.
About The Family Center/La Familia
Since 1995, TFC/LF has served as Larimer County’s only early childhood and family resource centers. Now one of 31 family resource centers in the state, TFC/LF provides high quality early childhood education (ECE) to more than 75 children whose parents work and attend school, extensive crisis and family strengthening services as well as leadership and policy opportunities to more than 400 families annually. With more than 30% of the staff at TFC/LF being native Spanish speakers and over half being bilingual, TFC/LF is a trusted and safe place for Latinx families and is looked to by the Fort Collins and surrounding community as a leader in racial equity work. El Nidito was opened in 2000, in response to the community’s desire for affordable and accessible early childhood education and remains one of only two nonprofit ECE centers in the County, bearing much of the financial and quality/classroom dynamic burdens of Larimer County’s 3+ year closed CCCAP waiting list. Nearly 90% of enrolled families receive some form of financial assistance for care. Because of the extensive needs of the children due to a myriad of factors, TFC/LF has been significantly investing in quality improvements including educational, social and emotional support interventions for children and staff over the past two years.
