Community Based Flexible Supports

Community Based Flexible Supports (CBFS) is designed to improve the quality of life and support the recovery process of adults with mental illness. The CBFS service delivery model facilitates persons served moving towards the greatest level of independence and community integration possible.

CBFS provides comprehensive services to individuals referred to BAMSI from the Department of Mental Health.  CBFS utilizes a recovery-based model through person-centered care which dictates the active involvement of the individual served and his/her support network in the development of the Individualized Action Plan (IAP), as well as in the implementation of the treatment and rehabilitation interventions. Engaging and supporting clients through a strengths-based, person-centered process requires listening, establishing rapport, and maintaining a therapeutic relationship while working collaboratively.

Meeting the person served where they are and assisting them through treatment and rehabilitation interventions, while helping to create environments rich in opportunity and empathy, offer the individual the greatest hope for recovery which is what we strive for at CBFS. Our program includes a variety of community living options from residential supports, independent living supports, supported employment, peer support and advocacy. Our staff provides supports to persons served that vary from a few hours per week to 24 hours per day. The integral components of CBFS are interwoven throughout all service components and addressed in each person’s Individualized Action Plan (IAP).

Community Based Flexible Supports is located at 375 Westgate Drive in Brockton.
