About the Center

The Center for Family and Community Engagement (CFFACE) is a public service and research center at North Carolina State University, founded in 2008. The center fosters family-community-academic partnerships that are relevant and responsive to families and communities by supporting community engagement, offering training and technical assistance, and providing evaluation and research.

We work with interdisciplinary partners on both research and practice at the local, national and global levels to improve family and community health and well-being.

The mission of the Center for Family and Community Engagement is to advance safe, healthy, and productive families and communities.
