Our Families

The CFGC provides services to low income families with children that have significant emotional problems requiring comprehensive mental health interventions.  Our families often come to the CFGC feeling alone, and overwhelmed with the day-to-day challenges of raising a special needs child.

Our Communities

The CFGC serves children and youth living in the San Fernando and Antelope Valleys, primarily living in at-risk neighborhoods.  Our community is ethnically diverse.  Spanish is the most frequently spoken language after English.  The CFGC serves families that live in the highest poverty census tracts in the San Fernando and Antelope Valleys.

Continuous Quality Improvement

The quality of our clinical treatment programs and the efficiency of our daily operations are important elements of CFGC performance management. There are many practices in place that support our effort to attain high quality in everything we do. We continuously review current issues, trends and areas for improvement based on both internal and external sources of information.
