"Catch the Dream", a slogan created by area youth was the driving force behnd years of planning and coordination for the development of Future Foundations Family Center. The dream was to create a safe place for youth to participant in productive activities. The dream expanded by providing services for the entire family.
The Future Foundations Family Center, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization with a diverse Board of Directors, has its roots in the tragic murder of Crystal La Pierre, a 12 year-old middle school student. This 1993 incident was a wake-up call like no other and community leaders have wisely chosen to invest like never before in Cibola County's greatest resource, our children.
Since 1994, staff and board members have managed to raise well over 5 million dollars to construct the building and provided needed services. The facility and programs are sustained 40% by grants and donations obtained by FFFC Staff, 40% by the City of Grants/Grants Recration and 20% from Cibola County.
Programs at the Center are vast and varied providing a healthy mix of recreation, education, and prevention. All programs place an emphisis on delinquency prevention, youth involvement and work-force development.
