Self Help Inc Coordinated Family and Community Engagement is a nonprofit 501c(3) program that provides comprehensive services to low-income families. The populations we serve consists of families from multi-cultural backgrounds many of whom are single parents/grandparents working, going to school and raising young children. CFCE provides services such as parent workshops, parent/child playgroups and activities in the libraries. We also will meet with parents to discuss parenting issues. All the services we offer are FREE of charge and available to all parents regardless of income. These services are made possible through the MA Department of Early Education and Care’s Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant.
Self Help Inc Coordinated Family and Community Engagement began our Joy to the Children Project in 1999 after seeing that more and more families were in need of help at the holidays…..and there were less and less resources!
The program started out small, sponsoring about 100 families…….and has grown exponentially over the years!

This program is supported 100% through donations from local businesses, early education and care programs, individual donors, past recipients and the Gifts for Kids Program.
This program would not exist without the generosity of all of our sponsors.
