Coordinated Family Focused Care

Coordinated Family Focused Care (CFFC) is a pilot program that coordinates care of children and adolescents who are at risk of hospitalization or residential placement because of their serious emotional disturbance. CFFC seeks to build on family strengths and available support systems to help children remain in or return to the community.

Staff, family members and other key people, such as state agency and school representatives, develop a plan that focuses on the child's needs and proposes ways to improve the child's well-being in all settings, including at home, at school and in the community.

Youth who have Mass Health insurance with Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership as their provider, and who live in the city of Worcester, are eligible for the program.
