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.

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for Children & Families, Inc. is a phenomenal organization. Throughout the past two years, I have had the opportunity to serve as an intern, volunteer, and now a Board Member. With a staff whose advanced training is matched only by their passion for what they do, CCFI has helped improve the quality of life for many children and families in the region. As if being one of the oldest nonprofits in the area did not already speak for their success, CCFI is an organization that always stays true to their mission, constantly working to ensure that every boy and girl grows up safe, nurtured and loved.
