Maine Children’s Services: Building Futures

MAS Home Care of Maine, with locations in Westbrook, Bangor and now our newest location in Lewiston, offers extensive Children’s Services.

MAS Home Care of Maine’s Children’s Services is a trauma-informed and co-occurring agency.

It is the mission of MAS Home Care of Maine that all children and families in the state of Maine will have access to and receive the highest quality behavioral and rehabilitative community services in the least restrictive environment. A professional team will provide these services with the highest level or dignity and respect, supporting children and their families so they may flourish in their desired hopes and dreams for the future.

Children’s Services offers four main programs. Section 65 HCT, Section 13 TCM, Section 28 RCS, and Child and Family Outpatient Counseling.

Section 65 HCT: Home and Community Treatment
This program is available to children who have a mental health diagnosis and are at risk of out of home placement due to serious negative behaviors. This is an intensive, in-home treatment program designed to achieve the family’s goals in three to six months. A Master’s level Clinician provides strategies to help parents and children manage the behavior, and a Behavioral Health Professional provides individual support to the child. This is a self-referral service*

Section 13: Targeted Case Management
As a Case Management Agency, we provide several services. We begin with an intake assessment for eligibility, and then focus on creating an Individual Service Plan (ISP) detailing the strengths and needs of the child, and the services necessary to address those needs. The Case Manager will identify the needs of the child and identify the services necessary to meet those needs.
This is a self-referral service*

Section 28: Rehabilitative and Community Support Services
This program is available to children who have impaired cognitive, behavioral or social functioning due to a diagnosis of developmental disability or Autism. A Behavioral Health Professional will work with the child in the home and community to improve daily living skills, socialization, communication, and behavior management skills. Families who have MaineCare can access this program through their case managers or directly through DHHS.

Child and Family Outpatient Counseling
Our newest service is easily accessible to members of the general public who self-identify a need for their child or family to receive counseling for difficulties they may be having in their everyday lives.
This is a self-referral service* 

*Families, social workers, doctors, etc. may contact MAS Home Care of Maine Children’s Services department to refer a new case.

We are always available to answer questions. Please contact us for more information on our services.
