What We Do & How

NCCF operates on four integrated pillars of service: community supports, education and training, volunteerism, and advocacy. Our programs provide comprehensive and tailored services offered with cultural humility that help children, youth, and families become confident and self-sufficient, leaving dependency, trauma, and poverty behind.

The resiliency of the children and families we serve continues to impress and encourage us.

GET INVOLVED​

We serve nearly 50,000 vulnerable children, youth, and families each year in the D.C. Metro area. It is important that disconnected, abandoned, and impoverished youth experience positive adult investment so they may bridge the gap to healthy productive adulthood. We need your help.

NCCF offers opportunities to volunteer, donate, and attend community events. Explore the many ways you can get involved and give back.
