We are pleased to announce the opening of the BHN Family Resource Center (FRC) in Ware, MA. The program is part of a statewide network of FRCs that help families and individuals resolve challenges, strengthen their bonds, connect to others and engage in their communities. In addition to assisting families with finding resources, FRCs support families with youth who are at risk of needing court involvement because of their behavior.
The Family Resource Center offers an array of free services through its experienced and knowledgeable staff.
School Liaisons help families work with school systems to ensure their children are receiving the support and resources they need.
Family Support Workers are knowledgeable on community resources and how to locate opportunities for families.
Clinicians and Family Partners work with families to develop a support plan that best meets their needs and supports their goals.
The BHN Family Resource Center connects families to appropriate services within the program or in the local community.
Here are some of the ways we help:
Help children develop social and emotional skills
Bring people together for mutual support
Link families to services and opportunities
Respond to family crises
Value and support parents
Strengthen parenting skills
The BHN Family Resource Center is currently open by appointment only due to COVID-19. Telephone support and virtual offerings such as story time and caregiver support groups are available.
