What’s New at CFCS

 

We are a safe space for everyone.

We know that no one can raise a child alone, and we know that it’s a little different for every family. But we celebrate those differences, and we welcome yours. Learn more about our services.

Get Involved

We invite you to help us make the world a better place for a child or family.

 

OPEN YOUR HOME TO A CHILD

The need for loving, nurturing caretakers is greater than ever. We recruit and support families who can provide transitional and/or permanent care for children in the child welfare system. 

Make a Donation

We rely on the support of conscientious people like you to make a positive difference for the children and families we serve. When you donate to CFCS, you’re changing a life for the better.

BECOME A CFCS VOLUNTEER

We are a small nonprofit with a broad constituency, and we depend on help from volunteers who provide their time or expertise to help with facilities, events and our holiday gift drive. 

 
 

We’re proud of our partners!

We're proud to partner with local and national organizations to further our work and improve our practices every day. Without them, we couldn't do what we do!
