Partnerships help us reach more children in Massachusetts

March 24, 2011

Thanks to the support and partnerships of the Department of Children and Families, The Department of Mental Health, the Department of Youth Services, the Family Networks staff and others, Youth Villages in Massachusetts is experiencing tremendous growth.

We are helping more children and young adults than ever before through our Intercept and transitional living programs and are expanding into new regions of the Commonwealth.

Youth aging out of the state foster care system face tremendous challenges, and our transitional living program is being utilized to help vulnerable young people adjust to independent adult living. We’re serving more than 45 of the Commonwealth’s most at-risk young adults in the TL program in the northeast and greater Boston areas, and we’re beginning to serve youth in the central part of the state.

By partnering with the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Mental Health and other nonprofits, we’ve expanded our intensive in-home services as well. We now serve more than 75 families in our Intercept program from nearly every part of the state, including the Plymouth and Cape Cod areas, as well as the western region of Massachusetts.

Our leadership council, comprising some of the state’s top business and civic leaders, continues to help us promote the important work we do in the community. In addition, they hold us accountable for achieving positive results. They play an important role in our advocacy efforts, and we look forward to expanding our community and volunteer work.

We’re excited to be able to help more youth in the Commonwealth and bring about a change that will have a positive impact for generations to come. With your help, we continue to reach even more children, young people and families. Thanks for joining with us as we work to help Massachusetts’ children and families live successfully.
