Since 1970 the spirit of BSCS’ founding agencies’ mission has remained the same. The statement has been periodically updated to reflect the evolving needs of our communities.
Bay State Community Services (BSCS) is a not-for-profit human services agency, dedicated to improving the social functioning of adults, adolescents, and children within a framework that recognizes the primary importance of family and community. To this end, the agency’s mission is to support individual, family, and community empowerment through an integrated, culturally competent continuum of social, behavioral health, substance use recovery, and correctional services.
The agency will further its mission by partnering in a strength-based culture of recovery that affirms the principles of self-determination and individual dignity while fostering the mutual aid inherent in belonging, in relationships, and in collective action for the collective good.
