CAF is governed by an 18-member Board of Directors representing public officials, the private sector and low-income citizens of the community. Current services funded by the Community Services Block Grant includes employment counseling, vocational skills training, computer training, GED preparation/basic skills upgrade, job development and placement, income management/budget counseling, nutrition assistance, and limited crisis intervention.
