Currently, we contract with the 18 area offices of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) to provide a comprehensive service to children and families involved in the child welfare system. COMPASS Family Specialists and Clinicians work to develop, support and strengthen the skills that families need to provide a safe and supportive environment for their children.
COMPASS serves as a liaison between the families and the public school, social service, and/or juvenile justice systems – and meets with clients and their families several times a week in the home and in the community.
Comprehensive Support and Stabilization (CSS) is responsive to the individual, evolving needs of the client and family. With the diversity of our staff, CSS is able to serve families whose primary languages include English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Cape Verdean Creole, Vietnamese, Khmer, Czech, and Portuguese.
