Department of Children and Families

Through the Title IV-E Waiver Demonstration, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Department of Mental Health (DMH) embarked on a joint undertaking to create an integrated service delivery system for children and families. Caring Together (CT), the Title IV-E Waiver Demonstration, is a joint purchasing model for congregate care and community-based services system that offers children, young adults and families continuity of services, care and treatment teams, regardless of whether youth receive congregate care or community-based services.
