I fell in love with the organization the second I met them and the families they help. The CLF is managed by one of the most loving families I know and that influences how they manage the organization and support the beneficiaries. It also influences the core principle of their work – “keeping families together.” The CLF’s approach to caring for the entire family is not only successful, but it’s revolutionary. The bond between parents and their children is irreplaceable and nothing can help children more than their own parents. The CLF recognizes this and has had the courage to push this approach and prove that it may not be the easiest, but it is most effective in serving those less fortunate.”
