Neighborhood Centers

In partnership with the City of Norman and Norman Public Schools, CCFI’s Neighborhood Centers provide family support and youth development services in middle and elementary schools immediately after school, during the evenings, and over the summer months. 

Family engagement and support services are designed to build social capital in the neighborhoods, to connect families to resources, and to connect children and youth with caring adults in their community.  Youth development services involve high quality out-of-school time enrichment programs for children and youth.

Program focus on helping children build a positive sense of self, personal responsibility and social competencies, serve the community and practice leadership, and development healthy relationships with caring adults and peers.

Physical fitness, healthy snacks, drama, music, art, homework help, and skill-based activities and games are used to meet the unique needs of every child.

Mission:
The Center for Children & Families, Inc. (CCFI) is a private, non-profit child and family service agency located in Norman, OK, with its roots dating back to 1969. The mission of the Center is to improve the lives of children through partnerships with families and communities because every boy and girl deserves to grow up safe, nurtured, and loved.

Although seemingly insurmountable obstacles are sometimes placed in their way, children’s resilience combined with the support of caring adults can make anything possible.

In order to ensure the healthy emotional, mental, and social development of children at risk, their families, and communities we focus on healing child abuse and neglect, supporting and educating parents, and creating neighborhood connections in and around the community.

The Center works toward giving all children the relational building blocks they need to grow into healthy adults, and believes that every child should be given the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.
