Our Programs

Step Up Program

The goal of the Step Up Program is for each participant to achieve a healthier, more rewarding life by specifically treating the whole person (i.e., body, mind, and spirit). We believe a person cannot be well, physically, if he or she is unable to navigate the transitions of life (e.g., career aspirations, financial security, residential security, and a sense of purpose).

CCF offers a variety of educational and vocational rehabilitation/career development programs, family support services, and residential housing assistance for clients and their families to help stabilize their recovery.

Moreover, CCF is devoted to strengthening the community through its “Adopt-A-Park” campaign and civic art projects, as well as by developing positive leaders who understand both the tragedy of addiction and the triumph of recovery.



It is our vision to provide equal access to career and educational opportunities for our community—which includes natural, physical, and spiritual advancement and healing.
