History of The Jacob Center

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. Our mission is working with youth, families, and the community to inspire positive and long-lasting change.

The Jacob Center maintains two offices in Fort Collins, and serves youth and families throughout Northern Colorado. Professionals and community residents compromise the board and staff
