Family Stabilization and Support

 The Family Stabilization and Support Service provides in-home crisis intervention aimed at returning destabilized or collapsing families back to emotional, physical, and financial stability.

The Family Support and Stabilization Service is provided in conjunction with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Department of Children and Families (DCF)


The Family Stabilization and Support service uses a team-based approach where both a clinical social worker and a case manager are assigned to work with each at-need family. Together, the case worker and social worker directly engage the family, focusing on  conflict resolution and behavior modification, on developing skills and tools to help prevent future crises, and on connecting the family with additional social and economic services necessary to further stabilize and maintain the family.

This ‘wraparound’ approach to family stabilization – where the family is assisted by two trained professionals across a wide dimension of needs (therapeutic, educational, medical, legal, day-to-day) – allows the La Alianza Hispana and the DCF to improve outcomes for families in crisis.

Services are available to families referred by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Any family with a DCF referral for these services can choose to have these services provided by La Alianza Hispana.
