As one of the largest human services organizations in New England, Ascentria Care Alliance empowers people of all backgrounds to rise together and reach beyond life’s challenges to achieve their full potential. Ascentria works with vulnerable individuals and families in its communities to break the cycle of poverty and help them move from dependence to independence. It is not your typical human services agency. Its human-centered approach is leading the way to change and improve the traditional social service delivery and payment models. Ascentria has developed and continues to refine more sustainable approaches that prioritize preventive support before people enter poverty and a continuum of care that supports people in their transition out of poverty to economic stability.
