Honoring Reverend Michael A. Farano

On October 18, 2018, Catholic Charities Community Maternity Services will hold its annual Celebration of Life at Wolfert's Roost Country Club in Menands. This year CMS will honor Father Michael A. Farano as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Farano Center for Children and Father Farano's Golden Jubilee.  Father Farano was instrumental in opening the Farano Center, the first licensed group home in NYS providing care for young children afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Over the past three decades the Farano Center has undergone numerous transformations and today it serves children with mental health, behavioral or emotional needs who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. The one thing that has not changed is Father Farano’s commitment to the children who call the Farano Center “home”. His generosity and ongoing friendship have helped improve the quality of life for those in our care.
