Welcome to AFC!
We are a non-profit organization .
We believe that some of the best support comes from individuals and family members who have been through similar struggles. We hold general meetings in Denver with informative speakers to keep us current on major topics of interest to our members. In addition, our meetings (Denver and Colorado Springs) are a places to meet others who may have helpful information to offer, based upon first-hand.
