Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Over the last 100 years, our programs have evolved to provide more emphasis on addressing the barriers that prevent people from moving to self-sufficiency in today's environment. CFC plays a lead role in developing an adult mentoring program in several city neighborhoods in partnership with other public and non-profit agencies. The ultimate goal of adult mentoring is to help people living in poverty overcome the barriers that have been preventing them from securing and retaining living-wage employment.

We are investing in redesign efforts to bring a stronger continuum of care to our residential substance use programs, and to bring coordinated care for co-occurring disorders to our mental health and outpatient substance use programs. And, we continue to seek ways to continuously improve and bring "gold standard" services in our Refugee Resettlement programs, our crisis and stabilization services (homelessness and crisis support), our aging & adult services for vulnerable elderly, and our children, youth and family services.

1. CFC has played a leadership role in the Rochester Monroe Anti-poverty Initiative since its inception, and in 2016, CFC was named the lead agency for RMAPI's adult mentoring initiative.
2. The Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded Catholic Family Center $1.3 million over four years to integrate primary care into our behavioral health services.
3. CFC was awarded $1.68 million from the Homeless Housing Assistance Program (HHAP) in December 2016 to renovate and modernize Sanctuary House, which provides emergency shelter and transitional housing for women and their children.
4. CFC was selected and received funding at the end of 2016 to be one of eight local organizations to implement trauma-informed practices throughout the agency, in both program and administrative departments.
