Prairie Family Center is committed to providing assistance to residents of Kit Carson County who are in need.

In order to follow social distancing recommendations from CDC and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, we are changing our operations as follows:
-As of today, March 16, all meetings with outside agencies will be conducted by phone.
-We have had many questions about whether participants can stock up on extra food. Right now we do not have sufficient supplies on hand to accommodate that. We are working with our partners at Food Bank of the Rockies. Additionally, we still welcome donations of non-perishable food from the community (see below for more information). Food Bank will be open with with pre-made boxes.
