About the CCF - The CCF is a New York State not-for- profit corporation established in 2014 – includes 34 member agencies that serve children and families throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Collectively, the CCF works with nearly all the youth in foster care in the greater New York City area and nearly 60 percent of the children and families receiving preventive care. The Collaborative evolved from common interest in strengthening internal capacity and improving service delivery for the children and families its members serve. CCF gained approval to create a children’s health home under New York State’s Medicaid reform program.
