The Guidance Center
Helping Families Succeed.
The Guidance Center provides mental healthcare, early childhood programs and family support services throughout Cambridge, Somerville and nearby communities. As a service of Riverside Community Care, we offer an integrated range of flexible services that wrap around the entire family. Our goal is to provide support close to home, and in many cases, right in the child’s home, or in local schools. We also work collaboratively with pediatricians and other providers. Our hallmark is our dedication to helping create lasting change for children, families and for the whole community.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"Riverside’s CBFS staff are the most competent, compassionate people I have encountered in many years of psychiatric care. I cannot say enough about the CBFS staff, they are a credit, not only to Riverside, but also to psychiatric caregivers everywhere."
