Family Policy Council

The Family Policy Council (Formerly Kids’ Council), officially known as the Coordinating Council for Children, Youth and Families is dedicated to developing policy and program recommendations aimed at improving the quality of life for children, youth and families in the City of Cambridge.

The Mayor of Cambridge serves as the Chair of the Family Policy Council, and membership is comprised of key stakeholders in local government and in the community, which includes the following:

  • Community Representatives (business, community-at-large, early childhood, school age, philanthropy, state agency, university, and youth representatives)
  • City Department Heads (City Manager designee, Assistant City Manager for Human Services, Chief Public Health Officer, Police Commissioner, Director of the Cambridge Public Library, Superintendent of Schools)
  • Elected Officials (City Councilor and School Committee Member)

Currently, the Family Council is working on developing the FIND IT CAMBRIDGE website, which will make it easier for parents and other caring adults to find the amazing array of activities, services, and resources that are available for children, youth and families in Cambridge.
