Services for Spanish-speaking Families
Families First serves Spanish speaking families through a statewide support line, Consejos Para Familias, and by offering Circle of Parents® support groups and parenting seminars throughout the Denver metro area - in schools, early childhood education and community centers.
Our Spanish Family Support Services provide a unique approach to much needed services in the Colorado Latino community. We connect with parents one-on-one and in small group settings, addressing parenting topics including communication, discipline, methods of coping with stress and helping to bridge the educational gap by encouraging the home and school connection.
We use the language and traditions of Latino families, and we acknowledge the challenges facing them. By utilizing family strengths and culture, we are effective in supporting Latino parents making a strong impact in the lives of Latino children.
Consejos Para Familias is the Spanish support line offered by Families First for Latino parents. Parents receive access to a wide variety of community resources as well as tips on child development, discipline, communication and helping their children in academic education.
