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.
