WHAT IS CFC ABOUT?

 

The Goal
CFC's goal is to develop a world wide, whole health organization, which acts as an agent of change.


We focus on the issues that prevent children and their families from achieving healthy, active, productive lives.  We encourage and embrace alternative and integrative approaches that heal the mind, body and soul, as this is who we are.   To do this, CFC is dedicated to providing, collaborating with other agencies and promoting individual projects that aid to the betterment of an individual or family life.

Public awareness and sensitivity will help children and adolescents receive appropriate services to improve their fundamental opportunities to lead healthy and productive lives within their families.


Another equally important activity would be to educate lawmakers, service providers, agency personnel, educators, and the community regarding the issues that affect the lives and opportunities of children and adolescents with health needs and emotional support and guidance.


It is also vital that families be seen as experts concerning their child(ren) and not be "blamed and shamed" because of their child(ren)'s conditions or special needs and requirements. They should be equal participants in the planning and treatment necessary for the child's recovery and valued for their expertise regarding the delivery and appropriateness of the services. Family members should be valued and compensated, as would any other participant in the process.

Mission Statement:

We are committed to improving opportunities for success for children and their families - all kinds of families, no matter the race, color, creed or sexuality, by developing and promoting integrative service providers and educational services for the achievement of whole health.



Vision Statement:

CFC recognizes that traditions are no longer enough to sustain families.  We no longer can rely on traditional family units and therefore support and value all families, traditional and non-traditional.  Because of this, it is our belief that traditional medication, education and labels no longer work.  CFC is sensitive to and supportive of spiritual, cultural and societal differences within our worldwide community. 

Our commitment is two fold: 

1.  To develop, support and promote holistic providers dedicated to healing the mind, body and soul of all for happier, healthier individuals. 

2.  To develop a resource for integrated services and educate the families we serve and the public on the availability of alternative approaches for a greater well-being and how to use them.
