The CCFA model is conceptually designed to impact the achievement gap in the City of Trenton. It is premised on providing a longitudinal support system, outcomes-based methodology and evidence-based practice, that will deliver a dynamic continuum of academic and social service resources for the entire family. Our continuum of services provides a suite of case managed interventions that include, but are not limited to individualized and family educational planning, child and family enrichment services, behavioral healthcare referrals, parent academic and job coaching, educational enrichment activities for children and families, parent advocacy leadership training and developing a family support network.
Partner organizations in conjunction with family cohort team leaders work to supervise client referrals and strategic engagement to augment and undergird the alignment and impact of services. The model includes the development of memorandums of understanding with each partner to ensure agreed upon protocols that programmatically support implementation and effectiveness. It also addresses the fact that children of economically and socially challenged parents require a unique mix of wholly integrated structural supports. The administration of these supports is managed by a project director and four family cohort team leaders, who under the leadership of the chief executive, work in partnership with each family and in tandem with our strategic partners, to execute our services and family achievement impact.
