Family After School Program

Family After School Program - Riverside Community Care

The Family After School Program is an intensive therapeutic program designed for seriously emotionally disturbed children ages six through twelve. The primary goal of the program is to prevent hospitalization and out of home placement for youth who require therapeutic services and cannot attend a regular after school setting. Participants are referred by the Department of Social Services and Department of Mental Health from the Cambridge and Somerville communities.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:

"When my daughter needed help, I made up my mind that I would take her anywhere in the world: to any doctor, at anytime, and in any place. She got the help right here - the best help she ever got was at Riverside."
