Compassion Capital Fund [CCF] Law and Legal Definition

Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) refers to the Children and Families' Compassion Capital Fund (CCF). The primary purpose of the CCF is to help faith-based and community organizations increase their effectiveness, enhance their ability to provide social services to serve those most in need, expand their organizations, diversify their funding sources, and create collaborations to better serve those in need.

The CCF is the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) recognition that faith-based and community organizations are uniquely situated to partner with the government in serving poor and low-income individuals and families, particularly those with the greatest needs such as families in poverty, prisoners reentering the community, homeless families, and at-risk youth.
