Supporting Families and the Children They Love
Children’s Aid & Family Service (CAFS) has been serving North Central Massachusetts since 1876 with its unique and innovative programs that assist families who are striving to achieve self-sufficiency through a successful life/work balance.
Children’s Aid & Family Service’s mission is to provide the highest quality day care, social, and wrap-a-round services designed to strengthen families and individuals, build healthy relationships, and promote self-sufficiency throughout Central Massachusetts. This mission is supported through a variety of options:
Our award winning Child Enrichment Center provides group-based child care provided year-round for children ages 15 months to five years, and accepts both private pay and subsidized child care vouchers. CAFS also coordinates Family Child Care, providing home-based child care options year-round in small group settings for children ages six weeks-10 years.
As one of the state's largest providers of Child Care Resources and Referral, CAFS is a single point of access for child care voucher management services and child care provider information and referrals.
