Who We Support
Center for Children and Families
Award Date: May 1, 2020
Center for Children and Families (CCFI) serves children and their families who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing child abuse, neglect or other adverse experiences throughout Cleveland County. All CCFI programs, with the exception of one, serve families in foster care, the child welfare system or the juvenile justice system. Technology upgrades and acquisitions will support the operations of the programs that serve these communities by providing consistent virtual access to counseling services, group classes and parent-child observations that improve their lives. Counseling services are designed to heal children and strengthen families by using evidence-based, trauma-informed care. Counseling services are available to children ages 0 through 17 and their biological, foster and/or adoptive parents to achieve safe, stable and healthy family relationships in the wake of child abuse, neglect and other traumatic experiences.
