community family life services




Community Family Life Services has been in existence since 1969 and is a nonprofit that provides children, families, and adults with the tools they need to move themselves beyond poverty and homelessness and also supports women who are returning home following a period of incarceration by assisting them as they move into permanent self-sufficiency. CFLS has two primary goals: to provide short-term crisis assistance; and to empower individuals and families to change their lives over the long term. Our programs and services include transitional housing, mentoring for individuals and families, employment coaching and placement, case management, family education, and emergency services such as food and clothing distribution.

We are pleased to announce that the “Passport to Success” tool is now available in both the Google Play and App Stores. To download a desktop version, please Click Here.




Throughout the year, CFLS hosts a number of special events aimed at raising funds and educating the community about the causes and consequences of homelessness and the unique plights faced by women reintegrating back into society after a period of incarceration.
