This organization provides such amazing, necessary support in today's complex world for kids and families. Children leave with a sense of direction and support to get through some of the worst times in their lives.

I’ve been a part of this Amazing Organization for the last year, and since the moment I joined, I realized that I wasn’t changing lives; The CF&GC changed my life. It has showed me how passion for helping our children, our future, can be possible when you do it with your heart.

I first started to support CFGC last year as a Ph.D. student/advisor to help with some of their process improvements. I was so moved by their mission and great work in supporting children and families in need in the greater Bridgeport area, that I was honored to become part of their excellent Board of Director's team. Many among us have experienced mental health issues in our families and our children. CFGC's dedication to helping any child and family regardless of ability to pay, is so vitally important that I will do anything I can to help this cause. I know others feel the same way, so we need to spread the word about this great community agency and their vitally important mission.
