Our mission is to equip families with the tools they need to become self-sufficient members of the community.
CFC educates individuals, supports families, and strengthens the community by
CFC offers community-based social and educational services to low-income families in Houston’s East End. Since its inception in 1972, CFC has grown to an agency with an annual budget exceeding $2.6 million and serves more than 40,000 clients each year.
All clients enter the CFC program through our Family Support Services department. Through a thoughtful intake, assessment, and referral process, our staff is able to determine client needs and address concerns through a wide range of support services. Once immediate needs such as food insecurity and wellness are met, our team continues to support families through additional CFC programs.
The Adult Education Program provides holistic academic instruction to individuals 18 years of age and older to ensure they have the education and skills required to achieve self-sufficiency and a higher standard of living. Throughout the program, we connect participants with workforce programs, financial education programs, and other resources uniquely suited to support their goals.
Our youth program consists of in-school and summer programs that provide intervention and prevention services designed to eliminate substance abuse, lower school dropout rates, lower the rate of teen pregnancy, and minimize delinquent behaviors. Key components of this program include academic and cultural enrichment activities, college readiness courses, and SAT preparation classes.
