C.A.F.E. empowers our families to participate in the education of their children.

We give a voice to our community at local and regional forums to ensure equity for Hamden schools.

We help our children thrive and reach their full personal and academic potential by offering low-cost, family-friendly enrichment activities.

What does C.A.F.E. do? Where does the money go?

Donations to C.A.F.E. are used to pay for C.A.F.E. organized Family Events, student field trips, school supplies and books, and after-school enrichment activities. A small amount is used for the administrative costs of running the organization, such as insurance and Connecticut PTA membership fees. All funds go back to the Church Street School families and our students.
