Fenway Family Coalition (FFC)

The Fenway Family Coalition (FFC) is a way for residents to be engaged in Fenway CDC programming, voice their concerns in a supportive and open environment, and build relationships with other members of the community. The group meets every two months and is open to all parents and children from the neighborhood. Every year, FFC organizes meaningful and fun events such as Mother’s Day Brunch, Halloween Party, and educational life skills workshops for parents and their children. FFC and Fenway CDC also collaborate with Operation P.E.A.C.E. to organize family-oriented activities to improve their quality of life.

To sign up for FFC e-news, please contact Kris Anderson at kanderson@fenwaycdc.org or 617 267 4637 x 29.
