The Dare Family Services Greater Boston office, located in Somerville, provides Intensive Foster Care services to approximately 32 children referred by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). We also provide Family Support and Stabilization services to 12 to 15 families referred to us by DCF.
We also serve adults, referred to us by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), who can benefit from the support of a shared living placement. The Shared Living program currently serves two adults. DDS also refers to us young mothers who need support and parenting training to help them raise their children. We now have six families enrolled in this program.
