Lindencroft provides a stable, safe, and supportive home-like environment for youth who identify as female/female of center/transfeminine, while also allowing them to learn how to safely utilize and integrate into the community. The program works closely with My Life My Choice to ensure that the program always evaluates policies, procedures and best practices from a Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) lens.

Lindencroft works in collaboration with the Berkley School Department to insure that each youth has an appropriate educational plan and setting. Some of the youth attend local neighborhood schools while others may attend a local day program. Lindencroft also works with the youth who desire a non traditional education. Lindencroft employs a full time case manger to coordinate all educational services. In-house tutoring and MCAS preparation is also avaiable.

Competency Development

Lindencroft provides opportunities for the girls to explore their individual interests in a safe and healthy way. We help identify and support each girl in attending weekly individualized competency building activities such as dance lessons, self defense classes, horseback riding, drivers educations, etc. Our Occupational Therapist assists girls in finding employment and volunteer opportunities within the community to help further develop their individual sense of self and build their confidence.


Lindencroft offers a variety of ongoing engaging activities that help support the girls in positive choice, growth, and wellness. In addition to our site-based opportunities, we have memberships at many local clubs and leagues to provide additional healthy and supported recreation, exercise, and team oriented sporting opportunities. This focus on wellness also carries over to our kitchen with the foods we grow, purchase, prepare, and eat.


Youth are evaluated according to a natural consequences system guided by the clinical framework of ARC in supporting goal attainment. The youth are also encouraged to spend time in the community in order to learn how to appropriately interact with others and follow community standards.

Staff work with youth daily to help them with a variety of tasks to develop life skills and build positive relationships. All of the activities at the group home are aimed at the ultimate goal of building healthy and safe attachments, developing a positive and cohesive sense of self, developing regulation skills, developing self-sufficiency and building competency for the youth. The formal and informal day-to-day lessons being taught by staff are supplemented with individual therapy, occupational therapy, family therapy and therapy groups designed to teach specific life skills. Additional CSEC prevention and processing groups are offered in conjunction with My Life My Choice.
