Partners, Supporters & Friends

Lynn Public Schools (LPS)

CFNS partners with LPS to bring before & after school and club programming to public school students located across the city. We are located in six city schools, serving children across the city.

The Food Project

CFNS partners with the Food Project to expose our summer campers to gardening and nutrition education. In the summer of 2018 Adventure campers in grades seven through nine watered community gardens located at public schools across the city three times a week, ensuring that the crops were healthy and able to be harvested in the Fall by the Food Project staff and the children attending those schools.  

MA After-School Partnership (MAP)

MAP is the only statewide afterschool advocacy group devoted to promoting expanded learning opportunities in Massachusetts. We partner with MAP to inform our program design and activities, and to provide professional development opportunities to our staff.

Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development (LHAND)

Since 1948 the LHAND has had a mission of assisting low and moderate-income families and individuals with safe and affordable housing. LHAND continues to be committed to enhancing the quality of our community and building stronger, healthier neighborhoods by providing a wide range of neighborhood services and funding a variety of grant and loan programs that address the needs of renters, owners, homebuyers, and nonprofit housing providers. CFNS partners with LHAND by providing child care slots in our After School programs.  

United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley

The United Way focuses on the two foundations of better lives. The first is financial opportunity. This ensures that individuals and families have safe housing, healthy food, quality childcare, and earn enough to support themselves. The second is educational success, which ensures that children enter school ready to learn, develop critical social and academic skills, and get the support they need to stay in school and graduate. CFNS partners with the United Way in a variety of ways to support our shared mission and goals.


Impact Lynn is a community collaboration with three focused goals; improve income, education levels, and community engagement of residents of Lynn. Together we are building a city in which every resident lives in a safe, desirable, prospering neighborhood.

UMASS Extension – Nutrition Education Program (NEP)

The UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) provides individuals, families, and communities with the knowledge and skills for healthier eating through research-based nutrition education that makes a real difference.  With field offices throughout Massachusetts, and in partnership with local agencies, organizations, and schools, NEP helps low-income individuals and families make the most of their limited food resources. Our program evaluations show that through NEP's hands-on learning, practical tips, personal goal-setting, and small changes over time, our participants make healthier food choices, handle foods more safely, and are physically more active - all of which lead to better health. CFNS partners with NEP to bring research-based nutrition education into our after school and summer camp programming.

Oasis Open Art Studio & Inspirational Space

OASIS hopes to bring art and creativity to a diverse community, allowing the individuals to express themselves while connecting with other artistic people in groups, workshops, or in an open studio experience. The studio is staffed by licensed counselors and therapists as well as art instructors.

What’s happening? Amazing things, everyday.
