Who are CAFF children?

The children range in age from newborn to 18 years. These children represent a variety of racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Most sibling groups need to stay together. All of the children we work with are survivors of trauma in various forms and degrees, and as a result many of them also may experience:

  • Behavioral problems
  • Developmental delays
  • Emotional problems
  • School difficulties
  • Challenges with attachment

In an effort to address trauma and its effects, each child is connected to a system of caring adults and additional resources including therapy. Many children remain connected to their biological families and other natural supports. All children possess the capacity to build on their resiliency skills and thrive.
