CDCFC helped my family with connecting to resources in the community and provided support through home visits as well. As a member of the Parent Policy Council, I have found it to be true that CDCFC enriches the lives of children and families through forward-thinking policies and decisions. I am so grateful to be a part of the CDCFC family and look forward to seeing the impact they have on the greater Columbus, Ohio community!
