Description:

Nestled on the west side of Colorado Springs, Family Life Services is an intimate community of single moms and their children. who are finding refuge from homelessness and domestic violence—a safe place carved out for courageous women who are building new life patterns and leaving old ones behind. FLS’s 2-acre property has nine apartments for working moms who are also working hard at transformation. It’s gritty and challenging—and full of promise.
