Wayside's mission is to empower children, young adults and families to achieve greater independence and emotional well-being

Background Statement

Founded in 1977 as an emergency shelter for runaway teenagers in Framingham, Wayside Youth & Family Support Network is a non-profit, nationally accredited human services agency dedicated to building Strength, Hope and Resiliency through its family-based outreach services, residential treatment programs, and community-based counseling services to more than 5,000 children, youth and families throughout Eastern and Central Massachusetts.

Wayside’s programs can be divided into three major areas:
Residential and Day Treatment: Wayside’s Framingham-based Campus employs the majority of our residential staff and offers varying levels of programs, support, and services for youth aged 12-18. Built in 2009, the Wayside Campus provides many different levels of care in one site: from short term hospital diversion to residential education. Designed to be a safe, secure, welcoming environment, and developed with the needs of adolescents in mind, the Wayside Campus provides the ideal balance between intensive care and the social and recreational benefits of a campus setting. Serving youth from across Massachusetts, the facility boasts six residential homes, each with a living space for 12 teens; onsite nursing and psychiatric care; a library; a gymnasium; and a sports field. Each year, our residential and day programs serve more than 1,000 young people, ages 12-18, and their families.
Community Services programs provide a wide variety of mental health counseling, family support, and care coordination services to help promote the resiliency and health of children, adolescents, and their families. These services support more than 4,000 children, young adults, and families each year. Mental health services – offered both at clinic sites and in family homes and other community locations –include diagnostic assessments, psychological evaluations, medication evaluation, and treatment, and individual, group, and family therapy.
Young Adult Services: Over the past decade, Wayside has provided leading edge resources to young people from ages 16-24, transitioning to adulthood. We serve 350 transition-age youth yearly. In most cases, these young adults are struggling with obstacles like lack of family connections, homelessness,mental health problems, addiction, and more, so the journey to adulthood becomes even more difficult. 

Impact Statement

Accredited by the National Council on Accreditation, Wayside participates in quarterly national benchmarking, collected and analyzed by Netsmart. In the past year, more than 100 child and family serving agencies nationwide participate, enabling peer agency comparison. In 2017, Wayside met or exceeded 99.2% of more than 1000 standards. Among our 2017 successes: 95% Keeping Families Together, 93% Family Satisfaction, and 95% Involving Families in Treatment; 88% Residential Program Outcomes; “No Wait List” at Framingham; 84% former employees would return; 38% Employee Diversity; top 5% Commitment to Diversity.

Goals for the upcoming year are drawn from the agency's Strategic Plan:

1. Wayside will RESPOND to the needs of the communities we serve with immediate access to our services.
2. Wayside will SUPPORT our staff team by investing in the hiring and development of a highly trained, diverse and satisfied staff team.
3. Wayside will continue to REINVEST in our overall financial health and infrastructure.
4. Wayside will EXPAND key programs to meet community needs and decrease service wait times.
5. Wayside will IMPROVE the quality of our services and the service experience of the children, young adults and families we serve.
6. Wayside will ADAPT to the changing health care environment by improving integration with primary care and ensuring we remain on the "leading edge' at all times.

CEO Statement

Each year, Wayside helps thousands of children, young adults and families struggling with mental illness, behavioral problems and other challenges.

We are proud of our successes and are moved by the stories that families share with us. Just recently, we heard from the mother of a young man who had been a resident at Wayside:

Since leaving Wayside, my son has been doing exceptionally well. He's been getting himself up every day and, so far, managing his own schedule and workload. He's the stage manager for the upcoming school play and has been involved with the National Honor Society. He hasn't had any days where he's withdrawn. He even interviewed for a job at Starbucks last week! And the best part is that he smiles and laughs again.

And that’s just one of the many stories we hear from families who have received our services and gone on to thrive in the community. These successes are made possible because of the Wayside community: a strong, tight-knit group of people working together to help children, young adults and families.

The Wayside community starts with devoted parents and caregivers who seek out Wayside for help. Community social workers, doctors and teachers provide further insight and guidance into each client’s story.

Then there is the dedicated and compassionate Wayside staff – social workers, therapists, counselors, nurses and teachers – who consistently do whatever is necessary to provide assistance and guidance.

Finally, the Wayside community’s most important members are the children, young adults and families who need our services. Every day they demonstrate the strength, hope and resiliency needed to overcome obstacles and learn to live fulfilling, healthy lives.

Community and Outreach Services

COMMUNITY AND OUTREACH SERVICES include the Wayside Parent Partnership program offering parent support groups, community education and one-to-one peer support in Waltham and Framingham; Wayside Trauma Intervention Services, providing individual and group therapy to victims of trauma and domestic violence in Milford; a free and confidential Rape Crisis Hotline; Wayside Multi-Service, a prevention, outreach and counseling service center in Watertown; Wayside Community Links, which seeks to prevent homelessness through mobile outreach and community services in MetroWest; Wayside Family Networks, a partnership between Wayside and the Department of Children and Families in five communities.

Budget  $3,294,628
Category  Human Services, General/Other Parenting Education
Population Served Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) People/Families with of People with Psychological Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success 

Short-Term successes include reducing client length of stay in residential programs by Family Networks programs; increase parent and family involvement with Multi programs; and increase the cultural understanding of staff among Parent Partnership staff.

Program Long-Term Success 

Community and Outreach Services encompass both new (Family Networks) and old (Trauma Intervention Services) programs. All of these programs serve important needs and have wonderfully positive outcomes. Parent Partnership programs offer peer to peer support to parents of children with mental health issues. Wayside Trauma Intervention Services has been helping victims of domestic violence in the Milford region for over 30 years, while the Rape Crisis Hotline has been relying on volunteers who donate their services year after year. Wayside’s five Family Networks programs, established a few years ago, offera single point of entry into DCF services which simplifies the process for families seeking support.

Program Success Monitored By 

Wayside is committed to a formal Quality Improvement (QI) process. Each program of the agency develops QI goals. The process begins with stakeholder input, then QI goals are drafted and approved by the agency’s Senior Team. A progress report is developed at six months, at which point the Senior Team meets with each program and reviews the progress report. At the end of one year, another progress report is developed and reviewed.

Examples of Program Success 

­From a parent letter: I’m sure you know by now that I’m a huge fan. I remain so. Judi is an amazing facilitator – her training in running a support meeting makes each one just that much more productive. She has a way of asking just the right (perhaps awkward – perhaps out of the blue) question at the right time and makes it so that I actually do things to improve my family’s situation. I thank you and her for making that possible.


Services to Young Adults

Services to Young Adults include the Prescott Young Adult Program in Arlington for young adults ages 18-25 with emotional and behavioral challenges, and ShortStop Transitional Housing for homeless young adults ages 18-22 in Somerville. Also includes Tempo Young Adult Resource Center in Framingham and STEPS Young Adult Resource Center in Arlington, whichoffer multiple resources for young adults ages 17-25 with mental health conditions, a lack of family connections, risky behavior, and other issues such as substance abuse and homelessness.

Budget  $4,375,947
Category  Human Services, General/Other Services for Specific Populations
Population Served College Aged (18-26 years) Homeless At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

Short terms goals include increasing employment support for young adults; launching an art-based micro-enterprise at Tempo (modeled after the Artists for Humanity’s program); increasing the number of young adults connected to primary care physicians; and increasing the number of youth working on long-term goals such as education and employment.

Program Long-Term Success 

Wayside’s services to young adults recognizes the unique needs of “transitional aged youth” ages 17-25 who face major challenges as they transition from childhood to adulthood. Wayside leads the field in providing innovative and successful services to this population. Our excellence was recognized when Tempo was designated a 2012 Social Innovator by Root Cause’s Social Innovation Forum.

Examples of Program Success 

Two quotes from program Participants:

“When I’m at Tempo I feel a part of something that is bigger than just a resource center.  I feel welcomed, helped, and more important, I feel safe.” 


“I was one of those “lost souls” and now I’m one that people can look up too. More importantly I can look at myself and like what I see. I know I have a future and the support I need to get there and stay there. I am so thankful for the staff at Tempo for giving me the chance to show myself that I can lead a normal life and that I am worthy of happiness.”

Wayside Campus for Adolescent Boys and Girls

The Wayside Campus, which opened in 2009, features six residential townhouses serving 12 teens each; Wayside Academy, a chapter 766 special-education school; Wayside Day Center, a psychiatric day treatment and partial hospital program; a reference and reading library; the Ron Burton Sr. Memorial Sports Center and an outdoor sports field; multiple use classrooms, art room and a computer center; and onsite nursing and clinical staff.

Budget  $8,593,670
Category  Human Services, General/Other Residential Care
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) People/Families with of People with Psychological Disabilities Homeless
Program Short-Term Success 

One recent success was the implementation ofIntensive Community Based Acute Treatment at the Wayside Campus. This new service is an alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, and provides intensive residential, day and clinical services for adolescent males and females (ages 12–18). Services include daily psychiatry, intensive clinical services for individuals and families, clinical group therapy, highly structured, monitored therapeutic milieu, crisis stabilization and discharge planning.


The successful implementation of this new service is an action step called for in the agency’s current strategic plan toward our goal to improve the Campus’s financial performance.


Program Long-Term Success 

In 2009, the Wayside Campus first opened its doors in Framingham. A 62,000 square foot therapeutic, educational and residential facility, the Campus sits on 14 acres of land just off Route 9. The Wayside Campus houses six residential townhouses, the Wayside Academy (a Chapter-766 special education school) and Wayside Day Center (a clinical day treatment program).


Since 2009, we have served over 2,000 adolescent boys and girls experiencing emotional difficulties. They sometimes come from an environment of child abuse and/or neglect.

78% of our residents return home or to a foster home after leaving the Campus. We help by providing care and treatment for these teens and their families; we prevent psychiatric hospitalizations; and if domestic violence and/or child abuse has occurred, we work to return these children home without further risk. Our programs work: we keep kids out of hospitals and we reunite them with their families, which is where they belong.

Examples of Program Success 

From a recent parent letter: “The reason Jason is home with us today is because of the staff at the Wayside Campus. We were blessed the day he was accepted. It has been a long emotional three years but the final outcome was worth it. We now have our son at home and are in a better place because of Wayside.”

Wayside Counseling Services

Wayside’s Counseling Services include: Outpatient Counseling at MetroWest Counseling Centers in Framingham, Milford and Waltham/Watertown; In-Home and Community Counseling in Malden, Waltham, Framingham and Milford; The Community Service Agency for the Framingham/MetroWest area offering intensive care coordination and family support; and Mobile Crisis Intervention delivering mobile, on-site, face-to-face therapeutic response to youth experiencing a behavioral health crisis.

Category  Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programs, General/other Outpatient Mental Health Treatment
Population Served People/Families with of People with Psychological Disabilities Families Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 

Recent successes include:Provide fasteraccess to outpatient services; improve access to outpatient care; and integrate the Metrowest Counseling program into other Wayside programs, and re-establish identity within Wayside.Other successes include increasing the diversity of staff; improving paperwork; and actively engaging families in all aspects of treatment.

Program Long-Term Success 

The Counseling Program has changed significantly over the past few years. With the passing of the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative, services have been added that support children and families in need. We have won the contract for the Community Service Agency for the MetroWest area and lead the state in number of cases served and in reducing the amount of time families need to wait to receive services.

From a recent letter from a family involved with the CSA: “Thank you again for everything that you have done for my child - I could not have done any of this without the help of your team helping and getting things into place. You are all AWESOME!!!! I love my little boy this way - calm, patient, considerate of others, generous, likes to share, friendly to a fault, willing to help with anything that is put in front of him! Everyone is doing a FANTASTIC job with him and it is showing in how he deals with situations and/or people. I could not be more happy. I really appreciate it I really and truly do.”

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

The Wayside Board of Directors meets its obligations for responsible stewardship in many ways. There are approximately 10 Board meetings each year, 4 standing subcommittees which meet approximately 6-8 times per year; and ad hoc committees as well. A Board self evaluation is conducted every two years and discussed at the annual board retreat. The CEO’s performance is evaluated annually and the CEO review and compensation are discussed in a full board meeting, in Executive Session, and also without the CEO present.


According to our recent (June 2012) Council on Accreditation report, “The board has a well-established system that helps identify potential board members, and they have been making a concerted effort of focusing on diversity of board members to mirror the communities that the organization serves. The board requires that potential board members serve on committees for the board as advisory members to determine commitment level and help prepare potential members to become board members. The board has taken a low-risk approach towards its investments. It also has a systematic approach towards the evaluation of its relationship with the President/CEO, as well as the relationship between the CEO and other senior staff.”

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
