Our Mission

The Jacob Center is a non-profit agency serving youth and families in Northern Colorado.

The Jacob Center believes strongly that every youth is inherently resilient. We operate our programming and tailor our interventions around this principle, seeking to empower youth and build upon their strengths and interests. Programs place an emphasis on utilizing a trauma-informed lens and building resilience by developing a strong sense of self, regulation skills and connectedness.

The Jacob Center was founded in 1988 by three social workers. Jacob, a family name, is historically associated with healing and also refers to an ancient surveying instrument (A Jacob staff), whereby people could get their bearings.

The Jacob Center is a trauma informed agency.

Our Mission Statement:

Working with youth, families, and the community to foster resilience, promote felt safety and inspire positive and lasting change.
