About Us

WHO WE ARE

Parents for Fun in Flagstaff is a group of volunteer parents from our community whose vision was to provide a safe place where the parents, families and children of Flagstaff County could be supported in a designated indoor space. Thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and the support of the community, this dream was realized when the Family Resource Centre was opened in 2010.

We continue to fundraise to keep admission cost low enough to ensure access for all families in our community and to ensure our sustainability as a fixture of Flagstaff County far into the future.

OUR VISION

To provide support and services to families and most importantly strengthen communities and family connections. Our continuing goals are:

 

  • offer consistent programs and services to parents and their children.

  • keep our user fees affordable for all families.

  • hours of operations open for users when they want.

  • continue to fundraise for the sustainability of our facility.

  • grow, change, be unique and fresh.

  • partner with local organizations and businesses so we all have the same common goal; increase a child’s potential so they can be the best they can be for the future of our community.

OUR MISSION

To provide a safe indoor space and effective programming to meet the needs of families of Flagstaff County and surrounding area.  We develop and operate programs and events that provide positive connections on our communities.  We create opportunities to break down familial isolation barriers, encourage support systems, assist in building sustainable and dynamic relationships while providing a place to encourage children, under the age of 6, to be active and healthy with their peers.
