CFR continues making a difference for families nationwide
This month, CFR hosted practitioners from Cabrini Green Legal Services (CGLA), a legal services nonprofit that provides criminal and civil legal service support, as well as some social work support, to clients in Chicago. For two days, Deputy Director Michele Cortese and numerous other CFR staff members welcomed the Director of Social Work and one of CGLA’s managing attorneys to our offices and the Family Court so they could experience our team model firsthand.
CGLA is hoping to replicate our one-to-one attorney to social work model, as well as our training, supervision, and training routines, to achieve a truly wrap around approach like that at CFR. We look forward to helping CGLA ensure that Chicago families will receive the same support and services that has enabled so many CFR families to stay together.
