In the fall of 2000, The Child and Family Research and Training Institute launched an Outreach Initiative to cultivate interest in volunteerism and educate families about the importance of participating in mutually beneficial projects. While we continue to implement our parent-child programs, we also offer family outreach projects that meet the needs of the local community.
"Community Outreach for Our Family": A Child & Family Institution Publication. As a year round resource, our booklet provides thirteen ways that families can get involved in their community, a non-denominational prayer ritual and a monthly journal to make serving others a spiritual and memorable experience.

In the fall of 2014 and 2015, CFI brought Compassion to the forefront of our community by hosting a 11-day kindness challenge and introducing the Compassion Games; a family day with opportunities to practice and show kindness as the way to peace.
In the fall of 2016, the Institute launched “Change Makers,” a middle school service learning program dedicated to encouraging middle schoolers and their mothers to give from the inside out by identifying their own unique gifts that can help to change the world.
