Child and Family Community Outreach Services (Gandara CSA)
Gandara Center provides several types of bilingual, bicultural services to youth with serious emotional disturbances (SED) and their families using a wraparound approach.
Services are youth/family driven and focus on developing skills and natural community supports to reduce crises and the need for hospitalization.
Youth must be under 21 years of age, be enrolled in MassHealth Common or Standard, and meet a diagnosis and needs criteria to establish a serious emotional disturbance. Programs include:
- Intensive Care Coordination
- Family Partner Support and Training
- Youth Therapeutic Mentor
- Behavior Management Therapy and Monitoring
- In-Home Behavioral Services.
