Our FRCs primarily serve families from Boston, Chelsea, Winthrop and Revere, though families are welcome to receive services from any FRC in the Commonwealth. We require no referrals, are not insurance based and help families regardless of legal status. Our staff speaks English and Spanish. There are no eligibility requirements or costs associated with the program, and there is no waitlist.
