Center for Family Opportunity

The Center for Family Opportunity (CFO), in partnership with Mile High United Way, offers free services to community members 18 or older in order to obtain critical life skills and increase their economic self-sufficiency. The CFO offers integrated services at one location, making it convenient for families to “bundle” services, including:

  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • GED (English and Spanish available)
  • Financial Empowerment
  • Workforce Development
  • Citizenship
  • Legal Services
  • Early Childhood Edcuation
  • Parent to Paraprofessional
  • 9Health Fair
  • Countdown to Kindergarten
  • Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC)

All classes take place at the CFO, located at College View Elementary, 2675 South Decatur Street, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Participants do not have to be parents of a Denver Public Schools student; these services are open to all members of our community.

Please refer to the Program Calendar, to the right of the page, to see which classes take place on which days and times.

The CFO also has a Training to Employment Pipeline, designed to increase diversity across Denver Public Schools to build capacity for self-sufficiency within the community and better reflect the demographic make-up of the city by providing classes to bolster skill sets in ESL, Spanish language, skills training and resume building.

With support from the CFO, parents have a variety of options for entry points:

  • Food and Nutrition Services
  • Facilities Management
  • Transportation Services
  • Classroom Paraprofessional
  • Construction Services
  • Extended Learning
  • Work-Based Learning Parent Trainings
  • Each One Teach One
