The Matthews House

Youth & Family Center (YFC)

415 Mason Ct. #1, Fort Collins, CO 80524

The Youth & Family Center is often referred to as “the house,” as it has the look and feel of a home, rather than an office. It’s important to us that our participants think of the house as a safe harbor– a place where they are comfortable and have support. Youth and families meet with The Matthews House staff, as well as social service workers, at the house, and participate in onsite activities. In addition to working on program goals, youth and families have the opportunity to do laundry, cook a meal and enjoy conversation with our house volunteers.
