A community anchor for over 30 years, The Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC) delivers quality education to Alexandria’s at-risk kids. Spearheaded by a group of mothers living in public housing in 1984, CFNC is the ONLY Alexandria, Va. nonprofit providing free quality, bi-lingual preschool and family support for our area’s working poor—members of our community. Not to be confused with Head Start, (the free federal pre-K program for our nation’s most needy) we support the working poor–a critical audience who would otherwise fall through the cracks in the system.Today we’re teaching 138 of Alexandria’s kids–providing early education, family support services and health services.
