Coordinator – Fathers Moving Forward

Catholic Family Service (CFS) is all about building strong families. Our programs and services respond to the challenges that threaten families and leave them vulnerable. We focus on enhancing the mental health and well-being of our clients, empowering parents, nurturing children’s healthy development and enabling success in school. We take an integrated approach across our service portfolio, always looking for the opportunity to encourage discussion and healing at the family level. In so doing, we enable CFS professionals to help their clients build strong and resilient families – and to break through the cycle of vulnerability to live the lives they have always wanted. We serve and employ people from all faith traditions, cultures and backgrounds.
