How to Find Help in Human Services in Massachusetts
By Dee Kennedy

Students

The extensive list below is meant to help you find all kinds of help. Your probation officer will know more about these services.

Probation Officers

Probation officers in the Changing Lives Through Literature Program are a logical resource for program participants regarding criminal-justice system information and human service referral information during and after the program. Most probation officers develop a positive, supportive rapport with participants who often come to view them as non-threatening, approachable criminal justice system people. They are ideally positioned to stress the importance of compliance with court orders and the potential each participant has for making positive changes in his/her life.

As officers of the court, probation officers can clarify probation requirements and give probationers a realistic idea of the potential criminal justice consequences of non-compliance. They also have access to a wide breadth of information on educational, medical, substance-abuse treatment, dental, mental-health treatment, housing, job training, and job-search resources in their communities. Probation officers often have contacts in human service agencies and can direct participants to specific people who can help them access needed resources and services.

The Office of the Commissioner of Probation requires Chief Probation Officers to have referral information on file and to keep that information up-to-date. Probation officers have access to that office resource. In addition, probation officers meet and speak with service providers on a daily basis as they implement community supervision strategies and use collateral contacts to confirm probationers' compliance or non-compliance with court ordered programming. Individually and collectively, probation officers have a wealth of resource information to share.

The following is a general listing of referral categories and some resource/referral information within those categories. The list is specific to Massachusetts, with an emphasis on the Boston Metropolitan area, but it will serve as a model and checklist for programs in other states. This is the sort of information that changes frequently and must be updated continuously. Therefore, it should be used judiciously, with the expectation that some services will change, new services will emerge, and contact information will not always be reliable. The CLTL staff will attempt to update the following list periodically, and readers will please note that, at present, the list remains incomplete.
