A.I.F.'s


C.A.R.

Has been serving children in need of assistance world wide for decades to make their lives better. 

Our goal has always focused on providing under served families with assistance when no other organization or resource is able to assist.  Our focus is on positive development for the young people in these families.  We provide outreach and prevention services that fosters healthy outcomes for youth. Our prevention approaches are critical to reducing disparities that exist in these communities we serve. Building a trusting relationship requires personal integrity, not just professional training and credentials as proof of trustworthiness.   We propose this by engaging in a great deal of listening to the needs of the community.  We believe that our successful outreach and prevention efforts have been successful because the A.I.F. responds to the needs of our communities.
