Our mission

Is to conduct research, analyze policy, and provide education and community service. The purpose of CCFL's activities is to enhance the well-being of children, youth, and families.

Smiling Kids

To nourish children and raise them against odds is in any time, any place, more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear bombs.
