*We serve families with youth ages 0-21
*Our goal is to eliminate barriers for families. Examples include but are not limited to: interpreters when needed, reimbursing for transportation to access QFRC services, free child supervision and meals for parenting groups, open evenings and Saturdays.
*Anyone can make a referral to the QFRC.
*Free services and no insurance needed. In referring families for services, we pay attention to insurance the family holds in accessing providers and assist with Mass Health application where appropriate.
*We work in close partnership with all families and caregivers, kinship placement, grandparents raising grandchildren, LGBTQ, mental health providers, medical providers, schools, the juvenile court system, and DCF among others.
*Referrals can be called in to any staff member, faxed to 617-845-9250, sent secure to staff, dropped off in person or mailed.
Supported through funding from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services in collaboration with the Department of Children and Families, the goal of the QFRC is to assess the needs of families and connect them with appropriate resources.
