Child & Family Resources, Inc.
Child & Family Resources (CFR) is a private, community-based, non-profit agency offering 31 programs throughout Arizona. CFR has a long history of building community collaborations that address unmet needs and gaps in social services. The agency was originally known as The Tucson Association for Child Care in 1970. The goal was to mobilize communities to develop quality child care options for low-income families. As the agency grew and took on new challenges, the name was changed to Child & Family Resources to reflect the wider scope of our programs.
CFR is headquartered in Tucson with offices in Phoenix, Casa Grande, Apache Junction, Sierra Vista, Safford, Bullhead City, Kingman, Nogales and Yuma. The agency currently employs over 300 people. Staff members reflect the cultural demographics of the communities they serve and are residents of those same communities. We help build communities that value children and families.
At least 92% of funding goes toward programs and services benefiting 39,000 families and children each year. Our family & community services build resilient children and families. Being a parent presents special challenges and joys. Some parents are faced with even harder challenges such as having a child with developmental disabilities, living in poverty, or not being able to provide basic needs for their children. Our in-home Family Support Specialists teach parents how to be the best parents they can be despite these challenges.
Our youth programs teach teens how to be leaders on their school campuses. They also teach teens about safe sex and how to make the best choices for themselves and their bodies.
Our services for child care providers help them provide the highest quality child care possible. Investment in quality early childhood care saves money by increasing the likelihood that children will be literate, employed, enrolled in post secondary education, and less likely to be school dropouts, dependent on welfare or arrested for criminal activity.
