About Us.

HELLO and WELCOME!
California Families in Focus is a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization that has been providing services in the city of Long Beach for over 25 year and officially became incorporated by Angel Macias and Robert Spieth in April of 2002. CFF has a long-standing relationship with many Long Beach nonprofits, LBUSD, CSULB, Elected Officials, Businesses, Foundations and has achieved national recognition through the numerous awards, acknowledgements and proclamations we have received from local, state and federal elected officials.

California Families in Focus provides services for youth and their families. Our mission is to develop and provide positive and innovative events and social service programs for youth and their families to achieve empowerment and purpose. Our primary focus is on developing a Whole Child and providing them with tools to prepare them for the workforce and society, and to help enable them to achieve their full potential. At CFF we utilize a holistic approach to accomplish our objectives.

Our 3 primary programs are the VIP (Visionaries Inspiring Purpose) Mentoring Program which provides teens 13-19 with a mentor, after school tutoring and entrepreneurial skills, The AMPD (Art, Music, Poetry and Dance) Program, where we work with the teens younger siblings) using Art, Music, Poetry and Dance as a form of healing trauma and expressing emotions in a healthy way, and the Familia y Fortaleza program, which is a mental wellness and leadership parenting program for the mothers)
We incorporate Social and Emotional Learning components into each program to educate the whole child. Through Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) we utilize age appropriate activities such as mentoring, art, meditation, self-defense/personal safety, dance, parenting, mental wellness and leadership classes, entrepreneurial skills and the mentor and mentee are offered opportunities to help plan events such as the I Matter 2 Anti-Bullying and Suicide Awareness Fashion Show and we use this to build self-esteem, teach them the importance of communication, team work, to regulate emotions, deal with stress, anger management and how to create social consciousness within our community.
One of the events that the family helps plan as a team is the Annual Spirit of Christmas Brunch that benefits Women and Children living in domestic violence shelters during Christmas. This is our signature event and it teaches the family team work and provides opportunities to feel a sense of accomplishment and gratefulness within the family unit.

Through the VIP mentoring program, we provide classes and workshops regarding ethical leadership, healthy relationships, domestic violence, self-esteem, personal care, mental wellness, drugs and alcohol and many other topics. We do not do this alone. We reach out to our community partners because we understand that together we make a greater impact.

California Families in Focus is funded by individual donors, local businesses and foundations. We also host fundraisers throughout the year, and our community partners also host fundraising events on our behalf.
