CFCS offers two group homes and an Independent Living program to transition-age youth (16-21), all of whom are referred by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) or the Department of Mental Health (DMH). Each youth transitioning from the residential setting will also have the opportunity to receive advocacy and support services, with DCF or DMH approval. Our residential programs are fully staffed by trained direct-care providers who offer counseling and support for the teens while teaching pre-independent living and independent living skills. Through weekly group skill-building sessions, young people increase their self-reliance, develop greater self-esteem, and ultimately become better prepared for success with school, work and relationships.
