The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of CFUM is to create a community to support the potential of children, youth, and families through educational success, healthy living, and community engagement.
Children and Family Urban Movement (CFUM) is a 501-C-3 non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1992, but some programs were offered pre-date that incorporation. We offer a large variety of programs for school aged youth and adults and relationships are at the heart of the work at CFUM.
In an effort to make the most of the assets present in the community, we share program and office space with Trinity United Methodist Church and Las Americas de Comunidad in Des Moines, Iowa. We are not, however, a faith-based organization. The neighborhood which we serve is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse neighborhoods in the state. The median income in the area is below poverty level.
CFUM is located on the corner of 8th Street and College Avenue directly across the street from Moulton Extended Learning Center. Enter through the red door on 8th Street and proceed down a couple steps. Our office is located immediately to the left at the bottom of the stairs.
