Cedars Family Association

Welcome to the
Cedars Family Association
(CFA) webpage

When your family member joins Cedars, we also welcome you as a member of the Cedars Family Association.

Our Purpose:

  • We support Cedars, its staff, clients, and their extended family members through meetings, forums, and events.

  • We serve as a regular setting for family members to discuss and provide input on topics of common interest with members of the staff.

  • We help Cedars share its mission and services to increase awareness of issues affecting individuals with developmental disabilities.

  • We raise funds for the Staff Holiday Bonus

We schedule meetings and forums throughout the year.

  • Regular family meetings are held three times a year. You will hear updates from Cedars Executive Director and other staff on current projects, new initiatives, and future plans. There is always a chance to participate and to ask questions regarding Cedars operations. We often have an outside speaker at these meetings.

  • Forums are dedicated to a specific subject of interest to the families. We usually schedule them twice a year, more frequently as topics of interest are identified and requested by members.

  • With Covid restrictions in place, we have been meeting via ZOOM, on Saturday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30am. Once restrictions are lifted, we will resume regular, in-person meetings.

If you would like more information about the Cedars Family Association or upcoming meetings or events, please contact:
