We are one community.

New Orleans is a historic community composed of many ethinicities, including African-American, Latino, Asian, Caucasian, and Native-American families. While a city uncommonly rich in culture and family values, daily life often brings extra challenges and stressors here, and unfortunately, crime has become rampant. 

 The Childhood & Family Learning Foundation (CFLF) was founded to address these challenges and end the cycle of hardships on students from stressed communities, who are expected to achieve equally with their more aptly prepared peers, whose early educations aren't compromised by the challenges of life in poverty.

 Community leaders support our project as a catalyst for neighborhood redevelopment, and they are integral in our planning and implementation. These leaders recognize this program for its ability to prepare all children - in mind, body and spirit - and to make significant health, academic, economic and social impact on all of New Orleans.
