INTENSIVE FOSTER CARE (IFC)
Communities for People, Inc. (CFP) provides foster care for children, adolescents and young adults who are in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families. Our program serves clients that range from birth to their 22nd birthday in licensed intensive foster care homes throughout eastern Massachusetts. The majority of our clients are challenged with behavioral or emotional problems, medical conditions, physical handicaps or developmental delays. They may require additional services such as therapy and behavioral modification plans which are coordinated by IFC program staff who support our foster families and the children placed in their home.
The program can alternatively provide support to prospective kinship or adoptive parents. Our unbundled services provide highly individualized placement supports to a youth at risk of disruption, returning home, or navigating a transition. Our unbundled services program is designed to be flexible and responsive to every family’s individual needs. Services from the program can last from 6 weeks to 6 months as necessary and are always driven by the family’s goals and objectives. CFP believes that children do best in family settings and should remain in their own communities whenever possible.
