Darla was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico. She moved to the states with her family in 2004, and has resided in Colorado since then. After living in Summit County, she moved to Kremmling in 2017 in order to experience a smaller community and the close-knit culture that comes with living in a small town. She loves cooking, music, horseback riding, and biking with her family! She has also always enjoyed working with children, ever since her first job at the age of 15 where she watched kids while their parents participated in English language classes. Darla joined Mountain Family Center in 2018 as the CATCH Coordinator in Kremmling. CATCH is an after-school physical activity and nutrition education program for elementary-aged children (grades K–5), and Darla loved working with the 60+ kids who participated in the program! She has also worked in the food pantry and thrift store, and acts as the Spanish language interpreter for clients who visit the Kremmling and Granby locations.
Darla has three children: Jason, Genesis, and Abraham, and one dog, Coco. Darla loves to help every single customer, no matter what their language is, or why they are coming for assistance. She helps regular clients feel at home, and welcomes new clients who want to learn more about what MFC offers. She currently works at the Kremmling Food Pantry on Tuesday and Thursday. She is excited to be part of an organization that helps families grow together.
Julie joined our team as a Thrift Store Sales Associate in 2019. Retail was a new experience for her after working mostly in office settings before coming to MFC. She loves the interaction with people, and the fact that all of the team’s efforts go towards helping the community.

When Betsy left Eternal Hills, she applied to work at Mountain Family Center as a thrift store sales associate. Her favorite part about working in the thrift store is helping customers find what they need. She decided to apply to MFC because she respects what they stand for and what they offer to the community. She enjoys being involved with an organization that makes a difference in people’s lives.
Kim Long is a driver for Grand Seniors. He helps seniors in the community by taking them on trips wherever they need, such as doctor’s appointments, senior meals, and even excursions to baseball games, the botanical gardens, and more. Kim said the part of the job he enjoys most is the fulfillment he gets from helping community members. Kim is a Grand County native and has lived here his whole life. He was born in a Kremmling hospital when mothers could still have babies in Grand County. Much of his professional work experience is related to his role at MFC. He has worked for Grand County Rural Health, as well as volunteering for many community organizations. In his free time, he enjoys singing and music. Kim is currently a member of the Grand Chorale Acapella group and the Grand Lake Folk Music Society.
