Purpose

Our organization started more then a year ago with a purpose.

Coalition For Community Action And Reform (CFCAAR) was formed to offer socio-economically compromised youths and adults community-based growth opportunities. As an organization, we seek to alleviate the stigma associated with underrepresented and disadvantaged populations through their successful exposure to our programs.  To that end we have developed and tailored our services to provide community members with the necessary tools to excel personally, academically, and professionally.

CFCAAR is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit community development organization committed to addressing the root causes of community deterioration and degradation.

All donations made to our organization are tax deductible.
