Human Services Network of Colorado

The All Families Deserve A Chance Coalition (AFDC) promotes public policy to improve the lives of all Coloradans living in poverty. The Coalition, established in 1991, is a network of direct service providers and policy advocates that educate, strategize, lobby, support and inform all Coalition members on issues impacting low-income families.

In partnership with the Human Services Network, the Coalition offers an opportunity for human service providers to become involved in current policy actions and to learn about laws and policies which affect struggling families.

What the AFDC Cares About
