Mission Statement

The Community Family Life Services mission is to provide homeless individuals, families, and women’s reentry with the tools they need to move themselves beyond poverty and homelessness into permanent self-sufficiency. CFLS has two primary goals: to provide short term crisis assistance; and to empower individuals, families, and women’s reentry to change their lives over the long term. Our programs and services include affordable permanent and transitional housing, mentoring for families, employment coaching and placement, case management, family education and food and clothing distribution.

Description

We have two primary goals: (1) to provide short-term crisis assistance, and (2) to empower individuals and families to change their lives over the long term. We achieve those goals through a web of interconnected services in three areas: Housing Services; Supportive Services & Community Outreach; Our holistic approach provides clients with education, skills and support from a committed staff, empowering each client to pursue his/her goals. During the last fiscal year, CFLS logged more than 5,000 interactions with District residents.
