The Children's Fresh Air Farm(CFAF) is a ministry of Independent Presbyterian Church in Birmingham. The Farm is located in Bluff Park and has worked with disadvantaged children since 1923. CFAF provides a Summer Learning Program for 80 rising 3rd through rising 5th grade students from Hayes K-8 School, a Birmingham City School in the North Avondale/Kingston community. The Summer Learning Program is a six week program, Monday through Friday, offering a morning of academics focused on reading and math taught by certified teachers; an afternoon of enrichment activities such as music, drama, dance, swimming, sports, art and computer labs and field trips on Fridays. We offer breakfast, lunch and a healthy snack each day, as well as daily chapel time. The Director is responsible for planning, hiring staff, and administering this program. In addition, we are developing additional year-round programming to serve our Summer Learning Program students after-school and on occasional Saturdays. Church and community groups also use the CFAF property for meetings, retreats, and community gatherings. The Director oversees the entirety of this program.
