Brief History/Agency Overview

Family Continuity is a private, non-profit mental health and social services agency serving Eastern and Central Massachusetts from hub offices in Peabody, Lawrence, Whitinsville, Worcester, Plymouth and Hyannis for more than a quarter century.

Our mission statement says it all: Supporting family success in every community by empowering people, enhancing their strengths, and creating solutions through partnerships to achieve hope, positive change and meaningful lives. Because our focus has always been on Family, our programs and services target a spectrum of emotional, developmental and behavioral problems for children, adolescents, adults, couples and seniors. With over 20 programs, our portfolio of services encompasses community and home-based services, as well as outpatient clinics providing individual and family therapy.

Our treatment philosophy, founded on the belief that positive change is always possible:

  • The most effective treatment provides a continuity of care, acknowledging that connected, relevant supportive services to individuals and families promote recovery, stability, self advocacy and permanency in the midst of changing needs
  • Therapeutic change occurs in the context of a dynamic treatment partnership between the persons served and helpers, that is founded on choice, respect, honesty, and a shared responsibility for and participation in the development of solutions.
  • Effective treatment is empowering and strength-based, recognizing that all individuals possess resources for change and that change is possible when these resources are utilized.
  • Creating meaningful lives starts with identifying goals and connecting that to individualized, flexible and creative treatment planning that incorporates the persons' served family/community relationships, culture, and context.

As the pioneer for many innovative family-focused services, creating continuity in care is our goal. In its third decade, Family Continuity continues to take the lead in identifying service needs and developing strategies to meet the diverse areas within its communities, such as school settings and court systems, and providing supplemental services to other providers.

Family Continuity is proud to be a member of and support important Human Services and Advocacy organizations such as:
