Adolescent Services

DCF is committed to providing adolescent services that encourage positive youth development and empowerment.

The DCF Adolescent and Young Adult Services Unit provides transition services for adolescents and young adults who have experienced DCF out-of-home placement. We encourage youth to take an active role in all aspects of planning for services, and provide information and opportunities for growth. For more information you can call 617-748-2232.
