HOW WE SERVE THE COMMUNITY
Community Family Centers/Centros Familiares de la Comunidad (CFC) is a multi-service non-profit organization that offers a wide range of bilingual services to help families address their basic needs as they move toward self-sufficiency and economic advancement. CFC furthers its mission of strengthening families and enriching lives by:
* Providing a safe and nurturing environment for children to excel and adults to learn
* Strengthening community partnerships
* Promoting cultural understanding and community empowerment
For more than 40 years, CFC has served low-income families within Houston’s impoverished Greater East End. From humble beginnings as a group of community volunteers working out of a church basement, CFC has grown into an agency with a $2.7 million annual operating budget, 46 staff members, and more than 250 volunteers, which serve over 44,000 clients a year.
