Project Description

Community Family Life Services

Founded in 1969, Community Family Life Services, Inc. (CFLS) is a women-focused reentry organization providing wraparound services to help families move into self-sufficiency. CFLS achieves its mission by providing short-term crisis assistance and working within the DC jail, Bureau of Prisons, women’s halfway house, and with community partners to establish connections with justice-involved women prior to their release. Throughout a woman’s reentry journey, CFLS provides reentry case management, domestic violence outreach and education, employment assistance, parenting classes, HIV testing, medical case management, transitional housing, and programming that builds community among those we serve. With more than 50 years of service to the District of Columbia, CFLS has grown to meet the ever-changing needs of homeless and low-income families and individuals in our local communities. CFLS additionally provides emergency services to the broader community, including distribution of clothing, diapers, food, transportation assistance, birth certificate and identification vouchers, and hygiene items through its Drop In Center.
