How do I become a CAFF parent?

Contact CAFF Program Supervisor, Lindsey Munson, by phone, 434-262-6554 or email caffinquiries@charlottesville.gov and introduce yourself. You will then be invited to attend an information session that will give you a brief overview of the process and our program. After attending the information session and completing an application you may be invited to complete approximately 27 hours of required pre-service training. During the pre-service training you will meet with a Family Assessment Specialist to complete a home study and other required paperwork.
