Medford Family Network
The Medford Family Network (MFN) of the Medford Public Schools is a FREE universal (everyone welcome) parenting education and family support program, focusing on the positive impact on the developmental process of children prenatal to age 8 and supporting the families that care for them. It is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant, the Children’s Trust Massachusetts Family Center Grant, and the Friends of the Medford Family Network, as well as donations and fundraisers sponsored by the FMFN.
All adults who live or work in Medford caring for young children are welcome!
The front foyer of the Family Center holds a variety of items such as children’s and adult’s clothing, books, formula, and baby equipment. Families are welcome to bring and/or take items as needed. A major Swap Day offering gently-used items is held on a quarterly basis. Supermarket and other gift certificates are donated by families to distribute to families in need. There is an annual Thanksgiving Basket and Holiday Gift drive that MFN conducts with local schools, student organizations, houses of worship and a synagogue to distribute food and gifts to local families.
