The Child & Family Network Centers Named the 2017 Honorable Mention Recipient of the Board Leadership Award
Alexandria, VA — The Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC) was recognized today by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement as the 2017 honorable mention recipient of the Board Leadership Award. CFNC was selected for this award based on the hard work it has done in the last two years to become a well-run strategic organization and board of directors.
Adopt – A – Classroom
Last year, CFNC in partnership with several companies and community volunteers, provided 150 low-income four-year-olds in Alexandria with backpacks as part of our first annual Backpacks for Brighter Futures program. In 2015, several corporate sponsors made it a year to remember with their special gift of $5,000 making programs like this possible. This year we are looking to expand our reach and partnerships!LEARN MORE
CFNC was started in 1984 by a group of mothers living in a public housing community after they learned that 17 of their children failed kindergarten. From that modest beginning, CFNC has continuously grown both the reach and depths of its programs in response to community need. CFNC currently serves 138 children and their families in 8 preschool classrooms in Alexandria.
“It’s hard to argue with a preschool program that shows twice the student gains of other programs, especially when that program serves low-income families.”- Northern Virginia Magazine
