Centro de Apoyo Familiar or Center for Assistance to Families (CAF) serves annually over 15,000 low-income Latino and immigrant families. CAF was founded in the state of Massachusetts in 2006 to provide distressed homeowners with housing counseling services to prevent foreclosures.

In 2009, CAF expanded to Prince George’s County in the state of Maryland to expand its housing and collaboration efforts with its Faith-Based network, integrating its Commu-nity Transformation Model that seeks to em-power families and communities with re-sources such as food distribution, health, jobs, businesses, housing opportunities and other key resources.

In 2017 CAF merged with Housing and Com-munity Services of Northern, Virginia (HCSNV) to continue its legacy of serving low-income families in the Northern Virginia.
