The Colorado Springs Canadian Military Family Resource Centre is YOUR resource Centre. MFRCs in the United States are an integral component of the Military Family Services Program (MFSP). The CMFRC works for and are responsive to the community by offering a wide variety of programs and services that can assist you with your relocation and your time in Colorado Springs. Because Advisory committees outside of Canada are not incorporated boards, the full scope of accountability lies with the Commanding Officer CFSU/CNOS (CS).
Your CMFRC offers programs and services for all “families.” Whether you're a single member, married without children at home or have children living at home, you will find something for you offered at the Colorado Springs CMFRC.
The Directorate of Military Family Services (DMFS) requires that a Military Family Advisory Committee comprised of at least 51% civilian military spouses be in place to represent and identify the needs, concerns and aspirations of the Canadian military community. This committee acts in an advisory capacity to the Commanding Officer CFSU/CNOS (CS). Issues addressed by the committee include, community needs, long-term goals, programs, delivery and evaluation of services.
Funding is provided by DMFS to ensure that the unique needs of our community are being met.
Mission: Promote a strong and united Canadian Community by providing quality services that enhance Canadian pride and participation while being flexible to adapt to changing needs.
