Child and Family Development Center
Within our community there are families who need help overcoming issues or circumstances that place them or their children at risk. Children with developmental disabilities, emotional challenges, encounters with domestic violence, substance or physical abuse receive assistance through one of the many programs and services offered at the Providence Saint John’s Child and Family Development Center (CFDC). Our specially trained professional staff includes clinical social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, case managers, teachers and educational, occupational and speech therapists. Services are provided within the center, on school sites, in the home and in the community.
Established in 1962 through an alliance with The Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, the Child and Family Development Center has been helping families for over fifty years. We offer families, adolescents and children safe, nurturing and confidential services that recognize our clients’ cultures and spoken languages. Our programs focus on mental health, outreach and developmental and educational needs. We provide several early intervention programs for young children. And, for those unexpected situations, we have a crisis intervention program that provides immediate care.
We are a child-centered and family-focused program.
