Our Intensive Foster Care program provides placement for children referred by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) who are in need of an out-of-home placement in foster care. This program provides casework management for both the foster parents and children. We offer monthly training and weekly support teams to our foster parents.
The goal of the Family Support and Stabilization (FSS) program is to prevent an out-of-home placement for families referred by DCF. The FSS services are also available to help families reunify after an out-of-home placement, and to support guardianship and adoption placements.
The Shared Living program offers a treatment-focused living experience for adults referred by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS). This program enables developmentally disabled adults to live with families in the community. Normalization, skill development and advocacy are strong components of this program.
The DDS Outreach Parenting Program serves young mothers and their children. The program teaches parenting skills and educates mothers on their childrenâ€™s development. Our social workers visit the mother and child in their home environment twice a week to provide education and hands-on teaching.
