CFS Receives Accreditation from the Council on Quality and Leadership
The Center for Family Support is the first organization in the NY Metropolitan area to have been accredited by The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL).

On Tuesday September 27th, The Center for Family Support Foundation held its annual Golf Outing at Edgewood Country Club in River Vale, NJ. The 2016 event was the most successful outing CFS has ever held, raising over $71,000 (and netting over $100,000 for the first time!).
One of the main reasons for this year’s record setting numbers was the generous support of lead sponsor Mutual of America. A check presentation was recently held at Mutual of America’s Corporate Headquarters in NYC. Pictured, from left to right are, Barry Haber, Director of Development for The Center for Family Support, Brian Severin, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Mutual of America, MOA Regional Vice President Thomas Donato, MOA Account Executive and CFS Golf Committee Member Steven Ortiz and Steven Vernikoff, Executive Director of The Center for Family Support. The Center for Family Support Foundation is very appreciative of Mutual of America’s contribution to our 2016 outing.
The New Jersey Senate and General Assembly recently issued two Proclamation's recognizing the outstanding work of The Center For Family Support.
