The program currently provides four

Coan Middle School, and Crim Open Campus.
new family facility at 30 Warren Street is a milestone for the Whitefoord
Community Program as their client base will now be able to expand to adults as
well as children. This distinction allows the Whitefoord Community Program
to continue as a Federally Qualified Health Center which means continued funding
and improvements for the program.

Whitefoord Community Program is a nationally
accredited Child Development program, and provides Beyond School Hours and
Summer Programs for elementary and middle school students. For more
