The Center for Human Development serves more than 4,000 children, adults and families in Massachusetts and Connecticut with 800 caring human service professionals in 45 programs. CHD has been serving the most vulnerable people in our region for over 30 years. CHD is also a leader in community initiatives for violence prevention in schools and neighborhoods, and provides mediation and training to families, schools and community organizations.
CHD's programs include clinical and outreach therapeutic services, crisis assessment and stabilization, emergency and long term foster care, shelter and supportive services to the homeless, and community-based residential, supported housing, day treatment and vocational programs. All these services work to support vulnerable people as members of their communities, and to avoid institutional or restrictive environments whenever possible.
The Center for Human Development is dedicated to advocacy, empowerment, and the independence and integration into the community of the people we serve. Central to its success is its belief that organizational and administrative excellence is as essential to quality human services as is compassionate care. CHD has earned a local and national reputation for innovation. This alliance of agencies also enjoys an administrative structure more efficient and productive than any small program could achieve on its own. Donors know that CHD guarantees accountability in every aspect of its services. This guarantee of the quality, efficiency, and humane delivery of its programs and services is embodied in the CHD Seal of Assurance.
