General Information
Description of AgencyFamilies Forward Resource Center, formerly Lowry Family Center, provides management, family advocacy, counseling services, parenting, and support groups through programs at three office locations: Aurora, Montbello, and Green Valley Ranch.
MissionFamilies Forward Resource Center (FFRC) enriches entire families through partnership and services that create a safe, healthy and connected community. It provides comprehensive family support, youth development and adult education services to families in northeast Denver and northern Aurora.
HistoryThe neighborhoods surrounding Lowry Air Force Base took an economic downturn after the base closed in 1993. In response, the Lowry Family Center, as part of the Community College of Aurora, opened in March 1994 to support families in those neighborhoods.

Over the years, LFC saw a growing need for its services outside of the increasingly affluent Lowry neighborhood. To meet that need, LFC moved its main office to Montbello in 2005, while maintaining a smaller satellite office in north Aurora near Lowry. Lowry Family Center has expanded to now serve all of "far" northeast Denver and north Aurora.

In 2015, the Lowry Family Center changed its name to the Families Forward Resource Center.
