Making a Safer Place for Children
Christians As Family Advocates (CAFA) offers services to the community to create a safe place for children and families. CAFA is a state certified, non-profit 501(c)(3) mental health agency offering services and support to adults, children and families. We have several goals as follows:
- To equip parents to partner and parent in ways that ensure children's safety and allow children to go about the normal tasks of happily being a child.
- To be a resource for couples struggling to have safe, fulfilling, enriched relationships.
- CAFA therapists work with individuals, both adults and children, to help them find solutions to their presenting problems.
We blend biblical principals with psychological understanding to serve both the Christian community and the citizens of Lane County. We desire to serve as a resource to the local church to offer education about domestic violence and other mental health issues and to train the church in safe and helpful interventions. We wish to share our knowledge, skills, and understanding with the church as well as the larger community and to be available to serve as a bridge between the two.

- Individual, family, and couples counseling services
