Parents Assistance

The Parents Assistance (PA) program helps parents create and sustain healthy, safe, and nurturing relationships with their children, and serves families who are struggling with difficult family dynamics.

Our Promise to Protect Children 

CCFI provides a safe environment for children and youth to heal and grow. Our agency works to protect those we serve from abuse and maltreatment by carefully screening staff and volunteers, providing training on topics such as physical, emotional and sexual abuse awareness and prevention, and by continually monitoring adult-child relationships.


CCFI's Parents Assitance program is funded in part by the Oklahoma District Attorney's Council Office through a U.S. Department of Justice Victims of Crime Act  (VOCA) fund.

These funds are awarded to support direct services to victims of crime. The funds are generated through federal criminal fines, penalties and assessments and do not include general tax revenue.

The most common crime victimization among families served by CCFI is child abuse and neglect and domestic violence.
