Informational Open House
We offer two informational sessions each month from September through May (by appointment in the summer) to give details about our program and how to get more involved. These will be for curious seekers or people looking to get more involved with CFH. Sessions are held at various locations and times to accommodate busy schedules. All sessions will be approximately one hour.
