Building upon the state’s network of early childhood family and community
engagement programs (Coordinated Family & Community Engagement
programs, or CFCEs), Massachusetts has developed a community-based
Help Me Grow (HMG) system. CFCEs’ outreach and family engagement
work, especially with hard-to-reach families, serves as the foundation of
this system. CFCE efforts focus on providing support and education to
parents and caregivers around child development through the Ages and
Stages Questionnaire developmental screening tool, as well as connecting
families to appropriate services and resources in their communities.
