Friends of Broomfield began twenty years ago with Gina Coufal, Founder and Executive Director of Development, in her home! Her son was her inspiration!
We had the chance to visit with Gina at her newest building and meet with Rabin, who has been dedicated with Friends of Broomfield for several years! It was wonderful seeing so many familiar faces who come regularly to bowl with us!
Friends of Broomfield has so much to offer from day programs to cooking classes and social programs. They have already helped over one hundred people through their programs this year and has guided and helped twenty individuals find a job!
Friends of Broomfield is a one of a kind service organization dedicated to not only creating a sense of community, but establishing a place where people feel motivated, feel like they belong and are making progress towards their goals. This is a place where women and men with a developmental disability have the opportunity to share their stories, their dreams, develop their talents and abilities and to be supported to live healthy, happy, and meaningful lives.
Future goals for Friends are to continue growing and to provide opportunities for our friends to receive and maintain jobs in the community!
Friends of Broomfield is doing a Crawfish Boil in July and are always looking for volunteers, donations and sponsorships for such events and social programs.
