in-depth career development.


CFC encourages all individuals  to explore hobbies and personal interests. Classes on site and in the community enable each individual to develop new skills to expand their interests and open them to a wide variety of meaningful life experiences.  CFC also helps individuals to elicit relationships with natural supports in the community.
