The Crosby-Garfield Advocacy Group (CAG) was formed in 2014 to ensure continuous input in strategy development and marketing. Representatives include families that are receiving services, community partners, Raleigh CAC representatives, and representatives from the immediate neighborhood. The group focuses on identifying and connecting existing resources and partners in the areas of:

  • Health concerns
  • Youth concerns
  • Senior citizens
  • Families in the immediate neighborhood
  • Physical environment in the 1.5-mile radius around the center
