    Mashpee Coordinated Family and Community Engagement was established through a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care to support and enrich early childhood development by bringing together parents, professionals and community members. Our goal is to connect families and services. 

    Denise Fronius, CFCE Liaison ~ It is with great enthusiasm to be working as the CFCE (Coordinated Family & Community Engagement) Liaison for Mashpee.  So much of this position is to serve as a resource to parents and guardians of children ages birth through school age. This position is under the umbrella of The Coalition for Children.  I highly encourage you to visit the Coalition's website.
