Fountain Cares


A special welcome to all military families.  We are pleased to have you as part of our community.  Whether you are a service member, a family member moving to Fountain, or a resident veteran, we thank you for your service.  Frequent moves, deployments, and transitions can make it hard for military families to establish strong, trusted networks.  The City of Fountain wishes to make this move easier for you.  We have provided some useful information below.  

Currently 32,066 people live in Fountain.  4,461 are Veterans per the April 2010 Census Data.
