Eliot’s Children, Youth and Families programming encompasses a broad array of outreach and wraparound services for children with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED), delivering the full service spectrum of the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI).  Additionally, we provide residential placement options for youth requiring out of home care and treatment who are referred through the Departments of Children and Families (DCF) and Youth Services (DYS).

Early Intervention provides services for infants and children from birth to three years old who are developmentally delayed or at risk of developing a delay.

Children’s Community Based Services encompass the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) including Intensive Care Coordination, Family Support & Training, In Home Therapy (IHT), and Therapeutic Mentoring. Our continuum serves children and families in the communities of Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Reading, North Reading, Stoneham, and Wakefield.

Residential Programming   STARR and Group Home residences provide short term assessment and stabilization or longer term treatment for children and youth referred through the Department of Children and Families. These homes, located in communities across eastern Massachusetts deliver a child-centered, strengths-based out of home placement with the goal of family reunification.  Juvenile Justice programming delivered by Eliot includes a residential network for youth ages 13 to 21 who are court involved and need placement while awaiting return to court, assessment or longer term treatment. These highly structured, self-contained programs offer a comprehensive intervention for juvenile offenders.

The NAN Project The NAN Project is dedicated to raising the conversation about depression and suicide above a whisper by giving communities and schools the forum, tools, and resources needed to accept and address depression and suicidality. The NAN Project is committed to creating the information and supports that will allow young people to ask for help and to reach out to one another for support.
