About CFLS CFLS was originally founded in 1969 by members of First Trinity Lutheran Church in Judiciary Square to provide support for ex-offenders and their families. CFLS provided direct services such as food, clothing and transportation assistance, along with employment assistance, helping them and their families take the first steps out a life of poverty. Since then, Community Family Life Services has been hard at work in the Washington, DC community to help put Washingtonians who are low-income and homeless on the road to hope, homes, and a future through a holistic approach aimed at addressing the root causes of their poverty. There are many causes and factors that contribute to poverty and homelessness in the District, so we work with each family and individual to assess and address their particular set of circumstances through programs and services tailored to their specific needs. While a need for housing or other emergency assistance might lead them to CFLS, we look at other issues that may be contributing to their crisis, such as a need for job training or assistance finding sustainable employment or help overcoming substance abuse or mental illness. We provide services to those in need without regard to a person's faith and without proselytizing. Click on one of the links to the left or right to learn more about CFLS and our programs.
