Mission: CFK''s mission is "To create and support community partnerships that empower families in Josephine County to thrive." We are an inclusive organization open to all families, but focused on meeting the needs of working families. For 20 years now, CFK has operated a family resource center, which is home to a variety of nonprofit organizations all providing services and programs for children and families. We believe in collaboration and act as a catalyst in the community, partnering with other agencies to direct (or re-direct) resources to address the needs of families in Josephine County.

Programs: Coalition for Kids operates a Certified Child Care Center for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. The child care center has two convenient locations: 1) in the Family Resource Center, offering wrap-around care to children enrolled in other programs (Head Start, TinkerBell Preschool) in the building, and 2) on hte Rogue Community College Redwood Campus. Our emphasis is to prepare children to be "ready to learn" in kindergarten. In 2010 CFK launched a financial literacy program called Money $marts to provide the information and tools that will help youth, adults and families build good financial decision-making skills. Money $marts provides free community workshops, one-on-one financial coaching, contracted trainings with other organizations, an annual Your Money & the Law conference, and a Money $marts Camp for elementary school students.
