Mission Statement

Parental Mental Health Matters to Families and Families Matter to Us. OUR MISSION Child & Family Connections is a peer-focused nonprofit that helps improve the lives of families living with parental mental illness in meaningful and effective ways. OUR VISION We envision a world in which families living with parental mental illness are free of shame and stigma, in which mental health treatment is supported with the same compassion, commitment, and resources as other medical illnesses.


As a small, entrepreneurial nonprofit with big ideas and limited resources, Child and Family Connections relies extensively on volunteers to help fulfill our mission of helping families living with parental mental health challenges.

CFC is a pioneer and thought leader in the field of parental mental health. We're also a progressive organization. By design, we have no physical office and we pay no salaries. We do our direct service work in the field. This model allows us to dedicate over 90% of our funding to programming that directly helps families in need. At the same time, we're growing in size and mission.

We treat our volunteers, and nearly all of us are, with the utmost respect and by offering volunteer roles with important responsibilities. We believe this makes for exciting and rewarding work that we all feel proud of.

If you'd like to find out more, if you have interest in our mission, or if you have ideas you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you.
