FIRC moves to new Silverthorne office

The Family & Intercultural Resource Center has moved from Dillon to a new office in Silverthorne at 251 W. Fourth Ave.

After 20 years of serving Summit County, FIRC is now offering what it has dubbed a “family center” for the community. The old post office space will serve as the administrative offices and larger food bank. The new office also has space for 25 staff members, a learning kitchen for nutrition classes and three multipurpose rooms for parenting classes and more. The FIRC thrift stores are unaffected by the move.

“As Summit County grows the needs of families become more complex,” said FIRC executive director, Tamara Drangstveit, in a release about the move, which became official as of March 5. “The new space will allow us to continue to try and meet those needs and help families gain the skills and knowledge they need to contribute to our great community.”
