Friends of the Center for Families supports family activities, events, and programs of the Center for Families.
Our focus is to raise funds and awareness, and to support our community.
Friends of the Center of Families is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit started in 2012. We are a group of volunteers committed to raising awareness and funds for the Center of Families in Cambridge. We are volunteer-driven community members who have benefited greatly from the services the Center for Families offers and open to anyone who wishes to support the Center for Families. We started in 2009 to help cover the funding shortfall due to the bad economy, and became a non-profit in 2012. Through the local community's generosity and a variety of different fundraisers, we have funded a number of different projects for the Center for Families and have helped them increase their services and expand their outreach.
What We Do:The Friends of Center for Families have raised funds through Cakes Walks and Arts & Crafts tables We have funded:
a computer teacher for a family literacy program to help families learn and understand online resources
a bus for a beach field trip for families who would not have an opportunity to go
a Zumba instructor to teach a class for parents and to build community
Staff development at the Children's Trust conference
We welcome any volunteers with the Friends of the Center for Families events.
