School Closings

Keep track of weather-related closings, particularly during the winter months.

About Us

CFA boasts an extraordinary team of experienced and dedicated professionals and programs for parents-to-be, new parents and families. The programs and services provided are many as you can see from this website. Each year we have hundreds of families come to our facility ready to play, learn and grow. As a team, we are effective, efficient, and certain of who we are and what we do. Working with an extraordinary group, sharing a common purpose creates an energy that pulls us together. This brings new abilities, new confidence, new ideas and tremendous joy to all of us.

 

Children ARE our future! Happy, confident children and parents build stronger families. These families CAN and WILL create a better world, a brighter future.

From the Beginning

Childbearing Family Alliance, Inc, abbreviated CFA, was incorporated in 1981 by its founder, Riekie Urlich Alles. Riekie spent many busy years raising her children, working as a nurse and later as a certified social worker. She also had a thriving Lamaze® childbirth education practice in St. James, New York.

 

In 1990, Mary Kahrs, (BS, MA, LCCE, BSS, FACCE*) CFA’s Executive Director, had the distinct pleasure of meeting Riekie at a local chapter meeting of Lamaze instructors. 

 

Today, we celebrate over 30 years helping families on Long Island. CFA continues to grow. We are now in two offices nearly six times the size of our original facility. Our programs and services have expanded in leaps and bounds. All this making it possible for us to help many more families become strong, secure and stable.

BS - Bachelor of Science

MA - Master of Arts

LCCE - Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator
