WHAT WE DO

"Passion, dedication and sheer determination are the words I would use to describe team CF&A! Nothing was ever too hard, too complex, or unmanageable for them. I personally believe Central Unified School District's passion for students is more widely known because of the work of this great team."Michael Berg | Superintendent, Central Unified School District
"Cary and his team are invaluable members of the Habitat team. Not only have they raised millions of dollars for the organization, but also the level of awareness of the need for affordable housing in Fresno County. CF&A's hard work has a huge impact on the families we serve every single day."Anthony Miranda | former Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Fresno County
“CF&A brings The Allergy Institute's story to life in a way that we never could. They understand the importance of what we do for the community and are pros at getting the message out."A.M. Aminian, MD | Medical Director, The Allergy Institute
"They make it easy and are always just a phone call away. Whether there's an urgent situation, a simple question, or a request to take on a special project, the team at CF&A has always made me feel like we are their top priority."Jeff Percell | Superintendent, Riverdale Joint Unified School District
