About the Organization
With over 70 programs and services, CHD is one of the largest social service organizations in Western Massachusetts, delivering a broad array of critical services with proven effectiveness, integrity and compassion. CHD has been helping people build strong, productive relationships since 1972. Each year, our community based social service and behavioral health programs reach over 18,000 people in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut. We currently employ more than 1,400 professionals across all of our locations. Working in local communities, and partnering with local agencies, we provide focused, personalized services that promote real and lasting change.
CHD is internationally accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. CARF is an organization that reviews and grants accreditation services nationally and internationally. CARF standards are rigorous, so services that meet them are among the best available.
CHD is driven by a focus on excellence and a spirit of innovation. As a non-profit organization, our only motivation is helping people create successful lives. All of our relationships are rooted in respect for our clients, for the communities we are honored to serve, for our colleagues, and for all the lives we touch.
About the Community
The Center for Human Development (CHD) provides a broad range of high quality, community-oriented human services dedicated to promoting, enhancing and protecting the dignity and welfare of people in need.
CHD is dedicated to advocacy, empowerment and fostering independence and community integration of the people we serve. Central to our success is our belief that organizational and administrative excellence is an essential component to the provision of quality human services and compassionate care. CHD balances the innovation and creativity derived from a structure of programs that function with a measured level of autonomy with the efficiency and efficacy that derive from a strong central administrative and managerial core. We have earned a local and national reputation for innovation in service delivery models supported by professional administrative structures. CHD is committed to continually evaluating our models, structures and service outcomes to ensure our service recipients, funders and donors the highest quality services delivered with maximum efficiency.
