Two organizations supporting families and children in San Luis Obispo County, CA explore merging

Center for Family Strengthening (CFS) is dedicated to strengthening families through education and advocacy. CFS’ programs include parental coaching, specialized parent support groups, community outreach, and healing services for child abuse victims. Link Family Resource Center (Link) aims to foster a safe, healthy, and thriving community by connecting children, youth, and families with programs and services to address their unique needs. Due to overlapping geographic area and programmatic priorities, the two organizations have shared an Executive Director since 2016 and recognize the need to consider alternative structures. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration provided a grant to help fund the cost of a consultant to assist in the exploration of a merger.
