The mission of Christian Family Services, Inc. (CFS) is “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the fatherless and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27, NIV).
Providing Love and Support
Christian Family Services (CFS) operates to provide Christian social services to individuals, families, and children, regardless of race, religion, or national origin, in psychological, social, and economic distress.
CFS’s primary clients are women with unplanned pregnancies and biological fathers when they are willing. In addition, we conduct background screens, training, and home studies to certify families are eligible to adopt according to the state’s guidelines.
We have worked with women in need since 1978 throughout Central and North Florida. On average, we minister to over 135 women annually who have experienced unplanned pregnancies. Should a woman choose to make an adoption plan for her baby, she has access to CFS for the rest of her life.
Our counselors are committed to the women we serve, no matter what decision they make. CFS counselors come alongside them and provide pregnancy help and support. Many of the women we serve don’t have any support, and we are the only ones they can talk to about their circumstances and pregnancy.
Christian Family Services is dedicated to helping women find hope in what seems like a hopeless situation by sharing the unconditional love of God with the women we serve and their unborn children. We meet with women during pregnancy and attempt to help them holistically.
We help them plan for getting their life back on track, such as education, training, or working towards independence. We are with them at the hospital and continue to meet and work with them after the placement of a child into an adoptive family to provide grief/loss counseling, emotional support, and encouragement toward obtaining their set goals.
