Evergreen Community Services
Evergreen Community Services, located in Malden, MA, provides foster care to children and adolescents. The goal of the program is to promote the emotional, behavioral, social growth and development of children in the least restrictive environment appropriate to their needs. The agency ensures the safety and protection of the children placed, stabilizes the child, mediates family conflicts and helps in the transition back home or to a more permanent long-term setting. Evergreen's Comprehensive Foster Care program provides a range of family-based overnight care programs for children and adolescents who, because of the severity of their own emotional/special needs or their family situations, are at least temporarily unable to be cared for by their own families, or in a traditional foster home. Programs are designed to provide structured, goal-directed care for children and adolescents in a clinically effective milieu. The Community Services division also administers a community-based service to integrate and maintain children within their communities when possible and is used to preserve, strengthen and support families.
