About Us > History

In 2010, a committee was formed by the Metro Indianapolis Coalition for Construction Safety (MICCS) to develop a plan to establish a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that would provide financial assistance to individuals or families affected by a construction or facilities maintenance related incident or loss of life beyond that of worker’s compensation, other insurance, or settlements. That year, the MICCS Foundation was born and began helping construction workers and their families in need. In 2014, the Foundation became a standalone 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. In 2015, MICCS rebranded as the Coalition for Construction Safety (CCS). That same year, the MICCS Foundation changed its name to the Construction Family Assistance (CFA) Foundation to better express who we are and what we do.
