CEFO provides immediate assistance to children and their families who are experiencing a financial crisis. This year, we've set aside over $200,000 to help families meet basic needs such as food, clothing, and transportation. We also help families who are facing unspeakable health challenges while trying to make ends meets.
When a school principal recognizes a child in need, they reach out to CEFO to get support to the family within 24 hours. This critical support helps feed a hungry child, puts shoes on their feet, and changes the outcome for success for the student in need.
