Community Family Life Services (CFLS) provides a web of interconnected services to help women returning home from a period of incarceration as well as empowering homeless and low-income families or individuals to change their lives over the long term.
We achieve our mission by providing a range of programs and services that help our clients address the immediate and long term factors resulting from, or contributing to, poverty and homelessness.
