MAT Program

Our Multidisciplinary Assessment Team (MAT) works in collaboration with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the Department of Mental Health (DMH), and other community providers to assess the needs of children and youth entering the Foster Care System. This comprehensive evaluation covers all physical, mental, developmental, medical, and educational needs. The information obtained from the assessment helps determine what services are required to best meet the need of the child/youth and connects them to that service(s).
