Our Community Service Agency (CSA) serves families and children who are enrolled members of MassHealth or eligible to be enrolled in MassHealth Standard or CommonHealth. If you are a parent or guardian of a child who has a serious mental, behavioral or emotional difficulty, we can help to get you and your family the services you need.
How the CSA Works for You and Your Family
We all want the best for our kids. But it can be hard to find and coordinate the best services to help your child and family to thrive.
We’re here to help. We help you to find and coordinate the supports and services your family needs — right in your home community.
For example, you might have a child who struggles academically in school, has no friends, and has angry outbursts at home that you struggle to manage. CSA can help by first providing a comprehensive assessment of your family’s needs and strengths. We then work with you as the parent or guardian and your child to identify what supports and services are already in place and what services you might still need. Then, we work to bring your family and all the supports and services together to develop and agree upon the vision of what your family is striving for. We work as a team to collectively take steps to help your family achieve that vision.
