Community Healthlink's Youth and Family Services established the Burncoat Family Center in October 1992 as a residential and day treatment program for children with serious emotional issues. The program is located in a residential section of Worcester, Massachusetts.

Since then the Burncoat Family Center has provided a safe, secure, short-term alternative to hospital treatment for children. Often, children who are hospitalized with serious emotional issues depart an institution with problems still unresolved. The program, which is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, accommodates 15 resident-youngsters, and as many as 5 day treatment clients.

Assessments focus on youth and family strengths, and help the child and his/her family to recognize and mobilize their assets to solve the problems they face. Burncoat Family Center utilizes a systemic model that views youth in the context of the family and the broader relationships that influence their lives, including school and the religious community.
