Our Mission and Vision

CCFs mission is to provide primary care, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, care management, and social determinants of health assistance, in a unified family-based treatment approach aimed at servicing intergenerational and complex health needs.

Our vision is of an evidence-based healthcare treatment system that acts “as one” in delivering whole-person care.  CCF  ultimately seeks to reshape the future of healthcare for children and adults by establishing family as the nexus for health, not only improving the health and lives of one client or patient at a time, but entire families at once, in an effort to break the cycle of co-occurring illness and ailment that often afflicts high-risk families and communities
