Communities For Families Coalition
The Communities For Families coalition (CFF) comprises community members actively working together to improve the health and well-being of children, families and community. CFF meets on the first Thursday of every month, excluding July, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Gordon Family YMCA. Coalition work includes activities to identify strengths and needs of our communities; presenting forum and summit results to local policy makers; and creating opportunities for partnerships between individuals and agencies serving children, youth and families. Annual events sponsored by the Coalition include school-based youth forums and a community summit. CFF is a great way to link students and staff with resources and community service opportunities. This group also is a great resource for senior project mentors and placements.
