Your Donation Helps
Your donation to the Center of Family Love helps inspire the lives of adults with mental retardation and developmental disabilities. Although CFL receives funding from state and federal sources, this money only covers the basics of care. Generous donations, like yours, are necessary to meet each individual’s potential for a fulfilled life.
Thanks to generous donations from donors like you; young adults express themselves through art and music with the aid of technology; adults gain opportunities to join the community; and families find comfort when a loved one is ill.
Your donation to Center of Family Love is more than a signed check or credit card receipt. Your donation translates into real, tangible items that impact the lives of the individuals served by CFL every day. Donations, big and small, help make life a little easier, healthier and more fun for each individual.
