CFOC’s mission is “To help those in need to transform their lives by providing food, crisis care, opportunities for education and employment, and a hand up to families, individuals and children who are fighting to break the cycle of poverty.” We are dedicated to helping those that are in need to fight hunger, overcome personal crisis and prevent homelessness. We do this by helping struggling families get their basic needs met, connecting those in crisis with the resources and tools needed to get back on their feet, and providing the training and skills necessary to help our neighbors get employment opportunities, achieve their dreams, and regain hope for their lives.
