Since 1995, CCF has been offering a wide range of support programs that are closely tied to academic success as the best road out of poverty. Our services reach more than 3,000 individuals each year, from infancy through high school and beyond. Whether it is helping an unemployed father or teaching a family the value of early literacy, together we are helping people improve their lives by lending them a helping hand in their time of need. That is why your support is so important.
CCF provides high quality child care to support working parents, basic needs assistance with food/clothing, parenting education, after school programs, and job training initiatives. Our outcomes continue to demonstrate that these programs make a positive impact; whether it is improving a child’s reading proficiency or improving the quality of life for the families we serve. Because of the generosity of businesses and individuals in the community, we are able to work toward a time when all children and families can live in a safe, welcoming community - with many opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed.
