Family Support and Basic Needs
Salem Coordinated Family & Community Engagement Program (CFCE) is a locally based program serving families with children birth to 8 years old.
Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Programs (CFCE) are locally based programs serving families with children birth through school age. The FY2010 Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant is a consolidation of the Community Partnerships for Children Programs (CPC), Massachusetts Family Network Programs (MFN), Parent Child Home Programs (PCHP) and Joint Family Support Programs (JFSP).
There are five main goals of the CFCE program:
- Increase knowledge of and accessibility to high-quality early education and care programs and services for families with children prenatal through school-age.
- Promote parent education, family engagement and early literacy.
- Facilitate collaboration and community planning between local early education and care partners and other community stake holders, including parents.
- Provide support and information to families with children transitioning between and among early education and care settings, home and school, and
- Support early education and care programs across the public and private sectors in delivering high-quality services.
