Coordinated Family & Community Engagement Program

In addition to its Creative Start children’s centers in Newton, Waltham, and Woburn, CUI provides a variety of community based services through our Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) Grant from the MA Dept. of EEC.


Communities United, Inc. currently serves the following 7 towns under our CFCE Grant: Arlington, Burlington, Lexington, Needham, Waltham, Wellesley, and Woburn. We offer programs such as free parent child playgroups, raising a reader groups, parenting workshops (on child health, developmental milestones, financial education, nutrition, literacy, etc), and special family events throughout the year. Our CFCE program can also help provide you with free information and referrals to other local resources.


All of our programming and services are always free and available to all families with children birth – 8 years old. Our CFCE office is located on the second floor at 573-B Washington Street in Newton and is open from 9am5pm Monday to Friday.
