400 Backpacks for our Kids!

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our generous corporate partners, High Water WomenCambridge Associates  and  Putnam Investments every child we serve, ages kindergarten to high school, will start the upcoming school year with a backpack full of supplies.

More than 50 individuals tirelessly assembled  400 backpacks, filling each one with tons of age-specific supplies -- and cool ones at that! On behalf of all of us at CFCS, thank you for giving our kids the tools to succeed.

Summer Fun at CFCS

Thanks to a generous donation from Biogen of 37 tickets to a New England Revolution game, our kids enjoyed a great day at Foxborough Stadium. Shown above are young men in CFCS' Putnam Place residence program.

A child participates in "Bingo Night", hosted at CFCS for all children and families in our Developmental Disabilities program.

Our children and families enjoy treats they made themselves in a cooking class at CFCS.
