About the Collaborative for Children and Families (CCF)
The Collaborative for Children and Families (CCF) is a New York nonprofit which includes 43 member agencies (CMA- Care Management Agencies) that serve children and families throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We offer comprehensive health and human services to children and families in a more coordinated manner than could be achieved individually, and seek partnerships with other components of the health and human services systems to integrate care for those in greatest need.
We respond in part to external forces including New York State initiatives such as Children’s Health Homes and the evolving managed care programs in medical and behavioral care for Medicaid-eligible children. The Collaborative also seeks to strengthen internal capacity and improve service delivery and outcomes for the children and families in our communities by working together.

Collectively, CCF serves nearly all the youth in foster care in the greater New York City area and nearly 60 percent of the children and families receiving preventive care. On any given day, Collaborative members serve more than 30,000 children, providing foster care, preventive care, early childhood education, schools and educational programs, behavioral health, school-based mental health, case management, summer camps, after-school programs, and residential treatment.
