Our work is based on the essential truth that healthy, supportive relationships are the foundation for success in every child’s life. Your generous investments are increasingly vital in this mission for our community’s children. The sobering reality is that the financial crisis facing our state is crippling our ability to serve those who need us most.
At Center for Children and Families, Inc., our programs HEAL children, EMPOWER youth and STRENGTHEN families. These programs are designed to prevent child abuse and neglect
and give our community’s children the opportunity
to hope for a brighter
future. Imagine future generations where each child feels safe, nurtured and loved. Imagine a world where we break generational cycles of abuse and neglect. What a wonderful world that would be!

When Sequoya was an infant, her biological parents struggled with substance abuse and domestic violence, leaving them unable to adequately care for their daughter. Due to these challenging circumstances, Sequoya was placed into foster care when she was just 12 months old.
Upon entry into her foster home, Sequoya struggled to form healthy bonds with her foster family, so family therapy at CCFI was eagerly sought. Through the therapeutic process, the bond between Sequoya and her foster parents began to develop and deepen. Over the course of the next year, Sequoya slowly began feeling more safe and secure in her surroundings and stopped showing signs of aggression.
Sequoya was eventually adopted by her foster parents, who celebrated in this delight with the CCFI family. We are thrilled this vibrant girl is with a safe and nurturing family and that our agency played such a critical role in Sequoya’s story of love and healing.
