Cambridge Family & Children's Service
Last updated on August 27, 2013


The mission of Cambridge Family & Children’s Service (CFCS) is to identify and implement ways to strengthen family and individual self-sufficiency and promote conditions that provide all individuals with stable homes and possible community environments. CFCS envisions a world that works for all children.

CFCS provides a variety of programs and services to ensure that infants, toddlers, and older and often forgotten children receive the opportunity for a foster family or a permanent adoptive family; young adolescents are provided with safe, nurturing homes and the opportunity to acquire independent living skills; families who have a child with physical or mental disabilities obtain the support services they need and "at risk" youth receive social and emotional support from mentors.

Founded in 1873 as the Avon Home, an orphanage for local children, Cambridge Family & Children's Service (CFCS), a private, non-profit, non-sectarian organization, is one of the region's oldest human service agencies. Today our agency has evolved into a vibrant network of caring staff, families, and community volunteers--all committed to building a brighter future for our children and families. We now serve over 1500 clients in more than 40 cities and towns in Greater Boston.
