CFE Manual

The Collaborative Family Engagement (CFE): Creating & Strengthening Lasting Connections Manual (last updated September 2023) provides an overview of the principles and components of CFE. The Manual dives into each of the four C’s of CFE and will help you get started with CFE, or build off of the work you are already doing to find and engage families for children in foster care. You will read about the background of CFE, including its base in Kevin Campbell’s Family Finding model. You will also learn about CFE in practice: the importance of a team-based approach, engagement and connection tools, family meetings, mobilizing the child’s lifetime network and more.
