Organizational Overview

Since 1960, The Center for Family Resources (CFR) has helped thousands of low-income families with temporary financial and food assistance; housing services; and employment/education services. CFR is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by helping families acquire the resources they need to become independent and self-sufficient.




For most of us, the Thanksgiving holiday is filled with family, tradition, favorite recipes and of course thanks. But for some families, Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal.
 
For the working poor and the near-homeless Thanksgiving is just another day to survive.
 
We strongly believe that every family deserves the tradition of a meal at home together for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Our goal is to provide that for up to 1,400 families this year. 
To accomplish this, we need your help.
 
For the past 29 years, The Center for Family Resources (CFR) has been providing thousands of Cobb families with all of the makings of a Thanksgiving meal to take home and prepare for their families, including extra food to last the full holiday week.  While this relieves some of the holiday-related burden, it is only a brief respite.   The need is still great.  During 2013, over 18,000 families have come to CFR for help.  Their requests for rental and utility assistance totaled nearly $5 million
 
Please consider helping your less-fortunate neighbors by becoming a Friend of the Feast.

CFR is one of the oldest and best run non-profits in Georgia. They equip people by giving them a hand UP not a hand OUT.
