Service. Excellence. Community.

This is what the Champions of Hope achieve in a six month youth leadership program led by the Centers for Youth and Families in Little Rock, AR. They will learn more about social and emotional issues facing teens and families today, how to advocate for change, de-stigmatize mental health and hopefully take these life lessons into adulthood. To apply for participation or to see how you can support the the program, contact the CFYF Foundation today to learn more 501.666.9436

Make a difference to children and play golf!

Last year, more than 9,000 children in Arkansas suffered neglect, abuse or sexual abuse so severe that they were placed in foster care. More than 200,000 youth in our state survive tragedies such as the death of a parent or having a parent in prison, violence, living with someone with a substance abuse problem or someone who was mentally ill or suicidal. Many of these children grow up to struggle with a lack of education, under or unemployment and find it challenging to live a normal adult life.

Youth come to The Centers for Youth and Families to find compassionate healing and discover a chance for a better future.

You can help children and families by doing something you love: playing golf! Your support of the Centers Classic Golf Tournament, now in its 28th year, will provide needed support for programs at the Centers for Youth and Families that change the lives of close to 2,500 children, youth and adults in Arkansas each year.
