Empowering individuals and families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault to lead safe, productive lives through prevention services, advocacy, crisis intervention and recovery services.
A grass roots organization from the start, The Resource Center of Eagle County was founded on a November evening in 1983 in the basement of the Vail Chapel. A nun in Minturn had recently run a newspaper ad asking for help to support local women in crisis. In response to that ad, a small circle of women gathered at the chapel to discuss the issues, chart a course of action, and pass the hat to fund the first mailing of the new organization. The mission of that organization was to help women and children who were victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. By February of 1984, the organization was incorporated and registered with the state of Colorado as a nonprofit. Today, Bright Future Foundation (BFF) offers a full complement of professional services. They endeavor to break the generational cycle of violence by delivering services that provide immediate relief to families in need. BFF provides proactive and culturally sensitive programs that create sustainable emotional, behavioral, and community change.
