Our Mission is to Keep Families Together
CFR provides families in crisis with free legal representation and social work services to enable children to stay with their parents safely. We work to keep children out of foster care or keep their time in care to a minimum. At CFR, we believe that every family matters.
A major research study confirms what @EveryFamilyCFR’s data has shown: our model-providing parents w/attorneys, social workers & parent mentors, dramatically shortens the time children spend in #fostercare, w/no risk to their safety & millions in savings https://t.co/whoqcyXiCW
