CFAR July 2023 Newsletter




The mission of Center for Families and Relationships is to strengthen and build resiliency in families by providing individual, family and couples counseling utilizing a holistic approach to treatment. We are partners in parenting, empowering members of the family to make a permanent, positive change towards becoming productive members of their own families, and of our community as a whole.

Organizational News

We’ve been talking about all of the exciting growth that CFAR is experiencing, but we haven’t really talked about the many challenges that have come with this growth. A larger client base requires a larger team of therapists, and both of these require significantly more administrative support. In order to maintain our incredibly high standards for service quality AND continue to grow to serve more families in dire need of our services, CFAR is working to strengthen our infrastructure and create a plan for strategic growth. This is why we are so excited that we were awarded $1.8 million over 5 years from The Pew Charitable Trusts! Read on for more information about the grant.

Special Announcement!

We are incredibly honored to announce that Center for Families and Relationships has been awarded a significant grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts! CFAR will be receiving $1.8 million over five years in flexible support to undergo a business planning process, with the goal of expanding our therapy services significantly. This expansion includes doubling our client base and opening two new physical sites. In order to reach these ambitious goals, CFAR will need to grow our workforce, grow our internship program, and significantly strengthen our administrative and technological infrastructure. This is the largest grant in CFAR history and marks an exciting turning point for our organization.
