Favorite Aspect of CFT
"The impact that we make on the community, the constant hustle and bustle of information sharing and best practice exchanges between organizations across our great city, and the hearts of the colleagues I work with. Our reach and our impact is like nowhere else, and for that I am humbled, honored and proud to call myself a member of the CFT team."
