We know that the best place for children to thrive and grow is in a stable home with their families. Often, youth and their families need additional supports to make home a safe place for a child that is struggling with their mental and behavioral health. Safe at Home is a team of therapists providing In-Home Therapy and Therapeutic Mentoring services to the Greater Boston area who work intensively with a child and his or her family in their home for a period of 3 weeks or 3 months.
Comprised of master's level clinicians and bachelor's level therapeutic training and support staff, In-Home Therapy teams provide intensive family therapy services, working to keep children and their families together in the community. Working from a variety of therapeutic modalities, Safe at Home emphasizes a family systems approach that works with every member of the family to help meet therapeutic goals.
