We exist to improve the lives of children through partnerships with families and communities because every boy and girl deserves to grow up safe, nurtured and loved.


At the Center for Children and Families (CCFI), we offer strength-based programs and services to aide and educate families coping with abuse, neglect, divorce, separation, teenage pregnancy, a lack of quality out-of-school care, and/or other adverse experiences. 

Since 1969, CCFI has partnered with schools, neighborhoods, donors, public agencies, and families to provide education, prevention, and treatment services for families because we believe that every boy and girl deserves to grow up safe, nurtured and loved.

While our continuum of care is broad, with services ranging in intensity, our focus has always been to ensure that all children have safe, secure, nurturing environments and caring adults in their lives. We know that an investment in the lives of children today saves lives, preserves families, reduces crime, improves educational results and provides the best possible future for our economy and our community’s health.
