Family Resources
A resource for all parents looking for information.
Mesa County Partnership for Children and Families believes that strong families and children create a valued, healthy, and thriving community. In addition, every family needs support at home, work and throughout the community to create a supportive environment. As a parent, grandparent, guardian or other family member of a young child, you are a critical teacher and resource. Here you will find resources to help with child care, your newborn baby or general parenting questions.

If you are looking for a resource you don't see, please call: 970-683-4303.
We are here to help!

Are you looking for childcare?

Do you need to find a child care or preschool program for your child? Are you unsure where to begin?

Contact Colorado Shines Child Care Referral and receive a FREE child care, preschool or summer camp referral including programs that most closely match your needs.  A referral specialist will collect some information from you and search a database of licensed programs near you.  This service is confidential and typically lasts about 10-15 minutes.  Referrals are not recommendations.  It is your responsibility to screen child care providers and decide who will best meet your family’s needs.
