The Dianne DeVanna Center operates under a deep and abiding belief that children have a need for stability in their lives, which includes love, nurturing, a sense of security, and safety. With locations in both Braintree and Plymouth, the goal of the Dianne DeVanna Center is to assist parent(s)/caregiver(s) in accessing the services and supports they need to maintain balance and consistency for all who are in the home. Our Parent Aides assist families who may be separated from their children and work on goals as outlined by their DCF Social Worker. They will keep in contact with the assigned DCF Social Worker and update them on goals to achieve family reunification. Referrals to the program can only be made by The Department of Children and Families.
