With a rich tradition of helping the needs of changing families, Family Life Services has its roots in a 70-year history serving Colorado Springs. Originally an orphanage named The Christian Home for Children, the 2.5-acre property, donated to John and Nan Walden, became home to 34 orphaned children before ultimately refining its’ mission in the 80s to focus on rebuilding the lives of single moms and their children.
Committed to nurturing and preparing single-parent families to deal with overwhelming challenges, Women of Courage merged with Family Life Services in 2012 to reach further into a community of need. The combined effort delivers even greater opportunities to encourage healing and self-sufficiency by providing low-fee, onsite living quarters, professional counseling, one-to-one mentoring, crisis assistance and life skills development. With a shared mission to afford each mom a safe, structured environment in which to rebuild their families, Family Life Services and Women of Courage Outreach are dedicated to expanding their networks and resources in order to make an even greater difference.
Since 1942, Family Life Services has been rebuilding the lives of broken families on the generosity of supporters who believe in its impact. The stories told of each transformation are also the stories of our donors. Each person who invests in our mission helps shape the way we reach out and offers promise to new faces who have lost hope. Our ministry relies on those who share a heart for struggling single moms and their children. If you share our heart, then consider sharing in our story. Join our vision to create another 70 years of fresh starts and lasting change. With your contribution, we’ll reach deeper into the lives of those longing to begin again and offer escape from homelessness, abuse, addiction and despair. Family Life Services is passionate about ministering to families in need right here in Colorado Springs. Won’t you join us in building hope—and building a legacy—for the next 70 years?
