Who We Are
In June 2017, Northwestern Settlement partnered with Children’s Home + Aid to provide free, bilingual on-site mental health counseling and family wellness services to members of the Settlement community.
All staff at The Family Cares Center are Qualified Mental Health Practitioners and are overseen by Diana Buitron, LCSW. Individual therapists may possess an MA, MSW, LPC, LSW, LCPC, or LCSW. All therapists receive professional development and continuing education throughout the year including but not limited to Parent Child Interaction Therapy, Domestic Violence training, Trauma Informed care training, and Cultural Sensitivity training.

We primarily serve children between the ages of 2 and 14 years old who are already enrolled in any of Northwestern Settlement’s programs. Parents with Medicaid or Managed Care Medicaid whose children are receiving services with our program are also eligible for our services.
