    Founded in 1978, Mountain Family Health Centers—a Federally Qualified Health Center—is a mission-driven organization providing high-quality, integrated, primary healthcare, with special consideration for the under-served, regardless of ability to pay. We believe that healthcare is a human right, and not a privilege, and therefore are very proud to offer high quality, affordable, medical, behavioral, and dental services to the communities we serve.

    Mountain Family provides this care to more than 17,000 individuals and families who live and work in Garfield, Eagle, Pitkin, and Rio Blanco Counties and is pleased to now offer basic dental care for children and adults in its new 33ft Mobile Dental Van.  We accept Medicaid, and offer a sliding scale discount based on income.

    REST: Respite Education and Support Training
    Respite’s primary purpose is to give relief to families and caregivers from the extraordinary and intensive demands of providing ongoing care in the home. It allows families to help themselves, thereby reducing stress, preventing abuse and neglect, and enhancing family preservation and support. Attending these trainings will certify you with skills so that you can step in and provide support for primary caregivers. Once you have completed the training, the Senior Center will reach out to you when opportunities arise. Providing support for primary caregivers is challenging volunteer work, but is also a very fulfilling opportunity to support some of the most in-need people in our community.

    On March 16 and 23, from 12 pm-4:30 pm, the Community and Senior Center will be hosting a training for people who would like to be Respite volunteers. Participants are required to attend both training days and lunch will be provided. If you are interested in becoming a trained Respite volunteer please contact Rob Rumrill to RSVP at rob.rumrill@summitcountyco.gov.

    Mindfully Living Series


    Dr. Kim Bundy-Fazioli, LCSW will be facilitating a 3-week Mindfully Living Series 3/7, 3/21 and 3/28. from 3:00-4:30pm. Kim is the director of Mindfulness Matters Institute, LLC located in Breckenridge and provides mindfulness-based community trainings and education, as well as mindfulness-based counseling for anxiety, stress, and worry.
    Mindfulness is about learning to live in the present moment with compassion and kindness toward self and others. The research on mindfulness practice has shown that we can begin to re-route our neuro-pathways that often rein-force symptoms related to stress, anxiety, and depression. However, mind-fulness is a practice focused on training our attention; not unlike, physical training one does in sports. To register for this course, please contact the SCCSC at 970-668-2940. For more information about the instructor and course please go to www.mindfulnessmattersinstitute.com. Donations for this course are warmly accepted, but not required.
