About CFAC

The CFACs are self-governing groups that have a choice to receive administrative support from the Cardinal Innovations staff. CFAC members are adult volunteers age 18 or older who receive services for mental health, intellectual or developmental disabilities, or substance use disorder (MH/IDD/SUD) or are family members of those receiving services.
